Waterford Kilbarry Ballpoint Pens The Waterford parish in Kilbarry, Ireland, lends its name to this trio of fine writing instruments. The Kilbarry Gold features a distinctive guilloche pattern in the solid brass barrel that glows through the rich, transparent amber lacquer finish. Adorned with gold-plated accents, this robust pen offers a smooth, balanced feel to writing. The deep-cut "star" pattern on the crown evokes its Waterford crystal heritage. The Kilbarry fountain pen has a gold-plated bi-color steel nib engraved with the Waterford “seahorse” logo. The series also includes a capped rollerball and a twist-action, convertible ball pen/capless rollerball. A great choice for gifts! Fountain pen uses cartridges or converter.
