SOLD TO A WONDERFUL PERSON
Some of the earliest "plastic like" products were based on casein. Casein was very popular back in the 1930's for making buttons. This is a very very cool pen. It is made of casein. Casein is easy to make. Simply take some milk, boil it, and add white vinegar. Casein is a milk protein and will come to the top. At this point, you can skim off the casein, put it on wax paper, pat it with paper towels to remove as much moisture as you can, and let it cure for a few days. It hardens and feels like plastic (but obviously isn't). It can be cut, sanded and polished. It is used in dentistry as a tooth remineralization product too. It is that hard.
This handmade professional pen is made of 100% pure casein. Its ivory color is accented by striping which adds to the beauty of this unique pen. I took a cylinder shaped segment of casein and cut, drilled, sized, trimmed, shaped on a lathe, sanded, micro-sanded, and polished it all by hand. I used some high end pen parts to add more value.
The pen parts are rhodium coated with 22kt gold accents. The center band is even hand cast in 22kt gold. The nib on the pen is German made and iridium tipped to give you a truly wonderful writing experience. I also added a solid Cherry wood pen case to top things off. Simply an awesome high quality, top notch writing instrument!
I do my best to hand make to truly professional writing instrument. I have a full pen studio with top notch equipment designed to make the best. I would love to have you as one of my awesome customers!
