Default Huginn, a kitless Viking





Huginn and Muninn (Memory and thought) were Odin's ravens which he send out to gather information. As a pen is used to capture thoughts and memories I thought it a suitable theme for a carved pen.

Copper and ebonite, plexiglass piston filler, ebonite feed, steel nib.
Four start thread on the barrel and cap, double start threads on the piston filler and section.
The copper was carved using traditional Japanese carving techniques.
All parts except for the O-rings on the piston filler made by myself.

Questions and comments welcome

That's a beauty. I can't criticize as I'm no where near qualified to comment.
