If you’re not familiar with the term “Black Velvet” in regards to cocktails, it’s a combination of stout beer (often Guinness) and white, sparkling wine, traditionally champagne.
As you can see, the image of the drink on the left is pretty well brought to life in the new Sailor fountain pen on the right. The gold-colored flakes in the resin body do a great job of representing the carbonation in the drink and the white ends top off the pen with that perfect head of foam. That’s all accented with gold plated trim and a two-tone 21k gold nib.
The Sailor Professional Gear Black Velvet fountain pen retails for $327 but is available from Engeika for $197.
