If you are like many people you may have found my site while looking at many different pens by many other talented pen makers. The pen you are seeing in the pictures is different from any other pen (on this site or anywhere). I specialize in higher end pens. I mean by this ...extremely high quality pen parts and materials used in the making of each pen. This particular pen is one of the finest writing pens you will find on etsy or any other site. Here's why:
This pen is a unique one of a kind pen that features a real CS Nicaragua Especialista cigar band encased in crystal clear pen resin. The pen blanks are special (the body of the pen) because they were hand cast by award winning artist Don Vann. He crafted the pen barrels to resemble tobacco leaves and wrapped a real CS Nicaragua Especialista cigar band around before perfectly casting it. I took the pen barrels and placed them on my lathe and carefully sculpted them with precision to match the pen parts. Once the barrels were shaped, I micro sanded them and polished them using a combination of micro mesh, liquid polish, and diamond polish. I love to get a fine pen where the finish is so smooth it has a "wet look." Looks like glass!
The parts I choose to use are coated with platinum and have hand cast 22kt gold titanium accents. It makes an incredible pen. This pen has a very solid feel it to and is designed to last...forever. It would definitely be a pen that could be passed down for many generations.
The nib is a high quality German made nib which is iridium tipped for a comfortable writing experience.
I have also included a solid Cherry wood pen case to top things off!
ABOUT NICARAGUAN CIGARS
The history of Nicaraguan cigars begins with the exodus of 1959 when the great Cuban cigar makers left Cuba in search of new land to grow tobacco and roll cigars. While cigarette tobacco had been cultivated in Nicaragua for years, cigar tobacco had not been supported until the Somoza government found a way to take advantage of Castro’s revolution — they would take some of Cuba’s best cigar men, and some of Cuba’s best tobacco seeds, and finance a new industry for Nicaragua. Among the great cigar producers who played a part in this are Plasencia, Padron, Oliva, and Bermejo. Others would follow in time
This pen is rare and extremely high quality. It is for someone extremely special or for a luxury pen collector.
