Beautiful pen, a custom “hybrid” of gorgeous light-colored burl wood (natural edged) fused to an awesome resin (blue pearl and purple pearl swirled together with teeny little diamond sparkles). The contrast of the light colored wood with the darker blue/purple resin is dramatic and striking. I used a very nice exotic rosewood to fashion the little handle stem/finial. This is really a pretty pen, much prettier than the photos depict.
This is a handmade custom calligraphy pen, professionally made (by me!), and will easily and readily handle all of the rigors and demands of the professional calligrapher/penman. You will not have any issues with my craftsmanship, it is at a very high level. And of course this pen has my super hardshell clear coat finish (I put 16 coats on this pen). Hand applied finish, one coat at a time (not a spray on finish). Meticulously wet-sanded and buffed out to a mirror-like sheen that is extremely durable. This finish will never become sticky or gummy, and is so hard that if ink dries on the pen, you can merely scrape it off with your fingernail. This finish is SERIOUSLY tough and frankly is the best available.
