Blackbeard was and still is arguably the most famous pirate ever to set sail.   His dreaded raids dominated the seas between the U.S. east coast and the West Indies. I have been using a green patina which makes the pen look as if it might have been Blackbeard's travel companion.  The scrimshaw work is engraved into naturally shed moose antler and the surface has been left in its natural state so you can feel the antler as you handle the pen.  It will continue to patina with time.  Be sure to take special care, as the surface is absorbent, ink will penetrate and stain this pen if mishandled.  If you prefer an acrylic finish to protect it, please use the contact form to specify this after your order.  The appointments are cast from bronze and have a hand-rubbed patina.  It will come with  a medium point, German made stainless nib, an international ink cartridge, a piston converter for using with bottled ink, and a glass top display case. Should you choose the rollerball, it will come filled with an international sized insert which can be easily replace at most office supply outlets.
