Though the Montagues (and Capulets) were creations of Shakespeare, the culture and history they are based on is very much real. The design of this gorgeous pen is based on Venetian Gothic, a style originating in 14th century Venice and given to an architectural style combining use of the Gothic arch with Byzantine and Moorish architectural influences. The cap features bands of small pointed lancet arches flanking larger, more teardrop shaped Morish influenced arches. The pen tip also features the lancet arches while the pen top includes a quatrefoil window design. The pen is constructed from heavy-duty components that provide a bit of heft and a substantial writing feel. Includes a Parker style refill for smooth writing performance.
The acrylic in our pens have been hand mixed and poured in our shop in the Ozark Mountains of Missouri. We design our own colors that are swirled together in a pattern by hand that is both pleasing to the eye and makes each pen one of a kind. We are able to have more control over the patterns, and this gives us an advantage over buying our stock from other distributors.
Each pen blank is selected from our raw materials to complement the pen hardware. We choose the best pattern from a larger block, and size the material down. Then we hand drill the hole for a specific size. Then the pen blank is placed on a lathe, and hand turned to a specific shape and dimension to match the pen hardware. After the turning, the blanks are hand sanded and polished with several different grades of a special microfiber material one at a time. Once a smooth finish is achieved, they are buffed to create a show quality gloss finish. This process takes a considerable amount of time and machinery.
This is all done to provide the highest quality pen we enjoy making for you.
