Default Lambert Coat of Arms Pen

This is my first post to this forum. The Lambert Coat of Arms Pen was made for the Lambert Family, commissioned by Duke Lambert (a dear friend) for his father, David. The cap is made from White Tail Deer antler. The body of the pen is a segmented turning made from dyed Japanese Maple (checkerboard and blue segment), Red Jasper (center segment), blue Lapis dividers, and finished with more White Tail. The engraved images were taken from an original crest contained in a family book that details some of the history of the Lamberts in Connecticut. Each image was meticulously edited in Photoshop to ensure a clean engraving. The pristine engraving and color filling was done by the inimitable Ken Nelson. This pen took 70 hours to complete.

Let me know what you think!

The line just above the red looks like the colors are darker are they and are they supposed to be? I like all of the detail in it.

Now that is a pen to be proud of, the time spent into it really shows! I feel as though you just lifted the bar a bit for others to reach towards. Good for you! Awesome looking pen.
