Item details


The code T72 identify this penholder as the seventy-second penholder I've turned.
I made this penholder in Italy from a piece of solid polymethyl methacrylate (perspex) . Persperx comes from the latin "perspicio" that means "see through", actually this material between its qualities is also very transparent, even more than glass.
This oblique penholder together with "Glitter Storm T73" is the first ever penholder with a liquid insert that moves while writing. I painted the walls of the hole with some glitter to reinforce the shine and I decorated the liquid with the same beautiful iridescent silver-colour glitters. Enjoy the mesmerizing spectacle of a glitter storm in your hands!
The glitter will set if the pen rests, a nice shake will make them flow again!

IMPORTANT! : This pen is the very first I made with this new tecnique so due to craftmanship it has a tiny scratch near the flange (see picture 4). Even if the pen works perfectly and the liquid is securely sealed, I decided to make a 20% discount (you save 34 € ).

Penholder Features
Lenght: 18 cm (7,09 inches)
Widest gauge: 14 mm
Gouge where the finger rest: 10 mm
Weight: 15,3 g
The flange I will fix to the pen will be handformed with steel to match the silver glitters and fit to a Leonardt EF principal nib, if you would like me to adjust the flange to a particular nib, please let me know.

This holder will come to you with:
a safe hand-decorated plexiglass tube,
a handmade felt Pencase,
a Letter of Authenticy.
(the nib is not included)

I will donate half of the proceeds of this pen to the local pediatric ward to help buying new machinery!

For any question or request don't esitate to contact me.
