The legend of the Kraken was first recorded in the 14th century by Norsemen.   However, fear of a large beast from the deep made appearances even in the Greek myth of Odysseus and the Scylla.  The wood cap of this nautical beauty is Lignum Vitae burl.  The scrimshaw work is engraved into naturally shed elk 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.
