Beautiful pen made with top-quality flame maple (aka Fiddleback Maple, aka Tiger Maple). No matter what you call it this is a very nice wood; a high grade exotic “fiddleback maple” that is stunningly luminous, and has a sort of 3-D quality…the iridescent “rings” in the wood seem to move within the wood as it is tilted in the light. This quality is known as “chatoyance” in wood-speak, and it something that you will love seeing every time you pick up the pen. For the darker wood “accent rings”, I used exotic cocobolo wood, and the ornate “tail” is made from Honduran rosewood. A very classy and unique pen.
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.
I will happily set up the flange on this pen to accommodate your favorite nib prior to shipping. Please let me know which nib (only one please) that you will use in this pen and I will have it set up and fine-tuned for you when I ship it, so it will write perfectly right out of the box! (Nib is not included with the pen).
This pen will ship to you with a premium storage/presentation case
