The "Mountain Vista", Saltwater Seascape
This Mountain Vista ballpoint twist pen is truly amazing! The barrel of this pen has over 30 individual laser cut pieces! Each of these pieces are made of dyed woods with blues, orange, purple, yellow, greens, beige, and browns. Together they form a saltwater seascape with the blue ocean, two fish, green corals, a seahorse, rocks, and sand!
This pen was assembled under a 20x magnifying lens, needed for the tiny pieces. The "eye" of one fish was about the diameter of a sewing needle! Once assembled, the barrel was hand sanded to length, then put on the lathe and carefully contoured. From that point, it was hand sanded to correct dimensions, them meticulously coated with over 15 layers of acrylic (and hand sanded between coats)! The acrylic was then buffed and polished for a gloss finish, then treated with a micro-crystalline wax for added protection.
Two-toned chrome components were chosen to highlight and enhance the colorful woods used in the barrel. Some chrome has a satin finish, the rest is bright chrome. This ballpoint twist pen uses a standard Parker Style refill available in Supplies.
This is a one of a kind laser cut pen with terrific detail! Be sure to view this pens video above!
