An absolute beauty! I made this pen from a gorgeous “glittery” piece of jet-black resin, and attached that to a sleek piece of exotic Ebony wood. I inlaid a couple of white stripes to separate the two pieces. Tiny holographic bits are suspended within the black resin, and they glimmer brightly, like teeny stars in a midnight sky. This pen is nice and compact too! It handles like a high-end sports car! 🙂
This is a straight pen holder, so it is a super-versatile pen holder. Straight holders are great for both pointed pen (such as English Roundhand or Copperplate styles) and broad pen calligraphy styles (such as Blackletter, Fraktur, Textura). You can’t do that with an oblique pen holder. 🙂 Every calligrapher needs at least one good straight holder in his/her arsenal, and this is a GREAT straight pen holder. I use stainless steel inserts on my straight pens, so it will never rust out on you.
Unique Oblique Custom Pens are meticulously handmade 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 in a premium presentation/storage case
