Collection: Manufacturing of r.feather Etelburg fountain pens

The r.feather is a unique and very complex writing instrument in the world of pens. That means of course, that it has very complicated manufacturing processes. The preparation process required very intensive cooperation between the research and development team and the production.

The Perunal, which is the primer material of the r.feather is a very hard material. The manufacturing steps of the aluminium parts are optimized for both 3 and 5-axis CNC machines. To guarantee a long lifetime, we are using stainless steel at the part joints.

The long preparation phase was followed by the actual production. Control and keeping the quality of the certified material was a major task during the entire process. One production run produces 500 pieces. Every single aluminium part is hand polished. Our black r.feathers have a silky matt finish. We separate them and gave them a pearl blasting surface treatment.

The next step is logo engraving. At this point, every numbered r.feather is treated and packaged as individual units.

Thereafter comes the anodizing process. This defines the colours of the r.feathers and creates a protecting coating on the entire body of the writing instrument.

The final assembly and the packaging of the first 500 pieces were made exclusively by hand.

The r.feather is available in our webshop!
