This is a beautiful hand turned straight nib holder. The material is a custom poured Alumilite resin. Alumilite, is a two part polyurethane resin, that can be blended with dyes and additives to mix beautiful creations. I have mixed together a Black Pearl and a Blue Pearl with a little bronze powder added for good measure. The Blue shows as subte hints with in the beautiful swirling Black. The pictures cannot do it justice.
It is very comfortable in the hand. It has been polished to a high finish. It has been fitted with a steel insert to hold your choice of nib. These holders can wear out in time or become damaged. It can be carefully pulled out and replaced if needed.

The coating on this pen holder is a friction polish formula including shellac, walnut oil and wax. It is durable and water resistant. No coating will be completely waterproof. Please do not leave ink or water on your holder for too long, wipe dry with a soft cloth or paper towel. Never leave any pen holder standing in any liquid. Also bear in mind that some inks may contain staining ingredients which it is impossible to protect against. Never use strong chemicals or cleaning agents on your holder.
To keep the shine on your holder, gently polish with a soft cloth. If required, a light coating of furniture polish/wax can be applied.
