A beautiful pen holder, gorgeous colors (blue and mauve-is colors). I used durable acrylic for the “foot” section of the pen (the section where the flange is attached), and I used rock maple wood for the handle. I hand painted the handle to complement the foot of the pen, and the whole pen is coated with 16 coats of super hardshell clearcoat; and polished/buffed to a glassy sheen. Balance is excellent and it just fits the hand like a glove! Absolute joy to write with this pen, and it is quite unique; a one-off custom pen. (betcha never saw one like this). 🙂
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.
