100 Fountain Pens World Wide
Why is Gaston-Bexley Salute
to Lawyers the best?
Many fountain pens barrels and caps today are
injection molded. This is a process that first started
during the late 1940’s. You will find that many fountain
pens from that era and some of the more famous German
pens made this way.
Using this means of making the barrel and cap, causes
stress when the material is cools down. This is the reason
why you see some fountain pen that have cracked barrels
or caps. One very well known German fountain pen is well known
for having such problems.
Gaston-Bexley is made using precession machining, thus no
stress…and…no cracks. This is the reason that you still
find many early fountain pens in excellent condition.
Injection molding a faster and cheaper means of making
the barrel and cap…HOWEVER such is not better.
The old way is the best…injection molding is fine
for some things, cheap fountain pens, *give away* ball points, etc.
Fountain pen barrels and caps is not one of them.
Gaston-Bexley is precession machined…simply because
we want to offer you a fountain pen that is the best.
We produced 100 of the Gaston-Bexley pens…our
goal was to produce the best. If we wanted to produce
volume, then we could have had such made in Asia.
Instead we took the hard way, which is the best way.
