A beautiful pen that I made from an awesome piece of “double-dyed” burl (blue and yellow). The natural grains of this burl with these colors cause it to have a random grain pattern that reminds me of the Van Gogh painting “Starry Night”. I always find it so amusing that Mother Nature can create such beautiful art, and sometimes we just happen to stumble upon it! I paired this awesome burl with an ornate handle that I fashioned from Osage Orange wood (a very strong wood). Osage Orange is naturally yellow-orange in color so I chose it to complement the golden colors in the burl wood; and I turned some nice ornate decorative designs on the handle.
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.
