The jewel tone colors of this pen really pop. I photographed them with both a light and dark background to hopefully give you an accurate view. The top is made of birch that has been dyed purple and gray and laminated together. The center rings are made of figured maple with grain lines showing through. The center band is purpleheart. The tail is also dyed birch in an emerald color and the entire pen is coated in a smooth glossy shell for protection. The grip is a simple classic Tamblyn style that is thicker than the average pen for comfort as you practice or show off your swooshes.
The flange is made of hand formed brass, the most bendable and forgiving metal I have found, stamped with my maker's mark. It is permanently set with epoxy for stability and endurance. It comes ready to write with a Hiro 41 nib.
Length: 7.81" Width at finger grip: 0.37" Width at widest part of grip: 0.59" Width of tail: 0.21"
