Dick Koharik – Hand Turned Birds Eye Maple Pen – 24K gold accents

“Life is too short to write with a cheap pen.”

This is a one of a kind, hand made pen for the Berea Arts Fest Fundraiser event, I choose a pen style that would have been used in the 1950s and 1960s.  The wood is Birds Eye Maple and the pen parts are 24K gold.  I’ve also Added a modern touch by using a roller ball cartridge. Installing this gives the advantages of a fine fountain pen and the convenience of a ball point. – Koharik
