Truly gorgeous Maple Burl wood that is dyed a beautiful translucent blue color. I put a pearly blue “stripe” (inlaid) in the middle of the pen for more beauty and visual interest. I used Brazilian Ebony wood for the fancy black “tail”. This pen is really stunning!!
Straight pen holders are so versatile. They are great for both the pointed pen nibs and the broad pen nibs alike! You can go from Copperplate to Blackletter or Fraktur with only a quick nib change! Every calligrapher needs a straight pen holder in their arsenal!
My Unique Oblique Custom Pens are meticulously handcrafted writing instruments. They are finely crafted, pro-caliber calligraphy pens. This pen will easily and happily handle the rigors of the professional calligrapher. As with all of my handmade calligraphy pens, this one is coated with my super hardshell clear coat (12 coats on this pen). This finish is crystal clear, super hard, will never become sticky or gummy, and is almost impossible to stain. If ink or gouache dries on this finish, you can wipe it off with a damp rag, or for stubborn cases, you can literally scrape it off with your fingernail.
This pen will ship to you with a premium storage/presentation case
