This beloved Northern Cardinal songbird, has long been a resident of the southeast but has slowly been expanding northbound in the last decades.   My father-in-law, in Montreal, QC, Canada enjoys these in his yard year round, thanks to birdfeeders.  I engrave the artwork into naturally shed elk antler, and then hand-paint it with rich color using a 10 power magnifier and a very small brush.  For the cap, I chose to use Cherry burl, which is indigenous to the same area as this bird in order to keep them in their natural habitat so to speak.  I have chosen to use bronze fittings to keep with the earthy nature of this particular pen.  It will arrive to you with a medium point German made nib, a piston converter, an international ink cartridge, and a black display case which has a glass lid.  Should you choose to order the rollerball, it will be filled with an international sized insert which can easily be replaced at most office supply outlets.
