Slimline Twist Pen in Snakeskin & Big Leaf Maple

$69.00

The Pen:
This classic slimline pen was created using the plated 24K gold hardware. The clip is painted black and finished in a very hard epoxy to resist scratching. The mixed top and bottom add an element of the outdoors to this wood and skin pen.

The Skin:
The snakeskin was legally harvested, carefully wrapped and glued to a brass barrel. This barrel was then carefully set and encased inside a block of resin. The block was cut, drilled and shaped into an appropriate size for the pen. The skin is completely smooth and well protected.

The Species:
Bigleaf Maple is appropriately named, as its leaves are the largest of any maple, commonly reaching an overall width of 6 to 12 inches across. Bigleaf Maple is a commercially important hardwood timber for the United States’ west coast, where it is virtually the only commercial maple species in the region.

The Process:
The hand selected pieces for this pen were turned by Jack D. Ciallella on a lathe. They were sanded through twelve grits of sandpaper until perfectly smooth. A final seven coat finish of cyanoacrolate (”CA” Superglue) was applied, then buffed until shining beautifully. This method of finishing gives your pens the most durable exterior possible and a glisten that will last for many years.

Includes Pen Box & Two Refills.
