This stunning and elegant rollerball pen was handcrafted from a black acrylic blank. After turning, the acrylic was wet sanded and polished using a multi step process that produced a beautiful and protective finish. The striking hardware on this larger sized pen is sterling silver with a raised design on the 24kt gold plated accents. The pen cap may either be affixed to the end of the pen or left off while using. A truly spectacular writing instrument.
