In Spanish, Mariposa Linda means the beautiful butterfly. This pen was a commissioned piece that I liked so much that I decided to add it to my regular collection. I began by drawing the meticulous detail of the butterflies and cherry blossoms by hand. Then using cutting edge technology, the scrimshaw work was completed using naturally shed moose antler as the background. After engraving, I hand-painted the image with subtle color for added dimension. The fittings have a brushed satin finish, and the cap is held in place with a rare earth magnet.  The pen will arrive with a piston converter so you can fill with your favorite bottled ink.  I'll also send you an international ink cartridge which can be easily replace
d at most office supply outlets, stationary shops, on online.  Should you choose the rollerbal, the international inserts I use are the most common sizes and are readily available.
