NATURALLY SHED ANTLER is a symbol of strength and courage in the cycles of the wild. Few materials are as beautiful and unique. The color varies from pure white, to streaks of browns, reds, and sometimes even flecks of black. I use moose, elk, and mule deer depending on seasonal supplies. The hardware is brilliant rhodium with black titanium accents to give you the best quality available. The nib is German made and has an iridium tip for exceptional ink flow. If you prefer a solid 18K gold nib, please select the small solid 18k gold nib at the bottom of this page. It comes with a piston converter and an international size ink cartridge. replacement cartridges are easily found where fine office supplies are sold. Style also available in Rollerball.
