The leather handle will change color with the amount of contact it receives. The more contact it has with your hands, the darker it will get. The lid is made of acrylic imitation seashell (no sea creatures were harmed in the making of this item).
The style of this pen is a threaded end cap which makes attaching the cap simple and fast. When not in use, be sure to keep the cap on, or the ink will dry out. This pen has no short supply of style, quality, and function. This pen is great for the executive, the pen collector, and the gentleman or gentle-lady with style in your life. The weight of this pen also makes writing large checks (which we do accept) more satisfying.
