Material used to craft this pen:
HMS Warrior 1860
She was launched on 29th December 1860 and, powered by steam and sail, was the largest, fastest and most powerful warship of her time!
Built to counter the latest French battleship, Warrior was, in her time, the ultimate deterrent. Yet by igniting a new era in naval technology, she soon became outdated.
Warrior is a unique survivor of the once formidable Victorian Black Battlefleet and now serves as a museum ship, visitor attraction, popular private hire venue and more, back home in Portsmouth's Historic Dockyard.
The stamp used in creating this pen is genuine and issued by the Royal Mail as part of their 'Special Stamp Issue: Royal Navy Ships' and has been encased in crystal clear resin.
All resins used by Hopping Frog Pens are cast in our workshop. The technique involves mixing a two part epoxy resin, together with any colourants or woods, and pouring into a mold. A thermal reaction then takes place causing the mixture to harden, when it can later be handled to create a pen.
Due to the random nature involved in this process, no two resin pens will ever be the same, and can therefore be considered as completely bespoke.
Resin pens, once shaped, are highly polished before a final protective coat of carnauba wax is applied.
They are very hard wearing and have a high resistance to scratches, making them a favourite for everyday use.
