This is a segmented pen, where I use more than one type of wood within the body. In this pen, the main wood is curly Maple that has been dyed red throughout. A diagonal band of white American Holly runs through the upper body. I accented the Holly by placing a thin piece of Burmese Blackwood on either side. I originally made this pen for a Red Wings fan, but an Ohio State fan also wanted one like this. The effect is completed by using chromium trim pieces and a center band that is accented with black enamel.
The Parker-style refill is extended by twisting the upper body in either direction. The upper body can be unscrewed for access to the refill. I use only the highest quality refill - the easyFlow 9000 made by Schmidt in Germany.
