This is the “Designer Stripes Writer”; an elegant and classy looking pen holder. This pen is all hand made (by me)…I used a pinstriped resin for the “foot” of the pen, and paired it with a sleek black handle that I made from exotic African Blackwood. I spent some time turning the ornate decorative designs on the handle…very nice and all hand work. Between the striped “foot” of the pen and the black handle stem, I inlaid several black/white pinstripes (horizontal) while the stripes on the foot of the pen are vertical. These stripe “directions” contrast nicely and really give this pen a unique and interesting appearance. I’ve made several pens with a black-and-white color scheme, and they are always popular and visually striking. This one is no exception, it is really gorgeous. Fit and finish are peerless, and functionally this is an amazing writing instrument.
This is a handcrafted pro-caliber calligraphy pen that will easily handle the demands of the pro calligrapher/penman.
And of course I equipped this pen with 14 coats of my multi-layer clear finish…a hand applied hardshell clear that is meticulously and carefully polished to a glassy luster. A finish so durable that it will never become sticky or gummy (as often happens with spray-on finishes). It is soo tough, in fact, that if ink dries on the pen, you can simply scrape it off with your fingernail.
