Default Two Kitless Pens in Alumilite

Alumilite provides a broad range of options you have in colors, colors you can "paint in" when you are making custom pens. I have worked closely with Bob Dupras to design custom alumilite blanks that provide color transitions to make them interesting. Greens and blues are my favorites, with a splash of precious metal color. I decided to showcase as much of the transition of two pen blanks as I could by making a desk pen for myself (the green pen); I also find the longer pens easier to write with. The blue fountain pen I made for my favorite Aunt, who is in her nineties and still writes. Hope you enjoy the colors (thanks Bob!).
