This is an Arete fountain pen from Woodcraft. It's only available in chrome. It has a unique "hooded" nib, and a crystal in the clip. The blank is a poly called X-Ray from Bear Tooth Woods. Made a handsome pen.

Like other Arete pens I've made, the couplers fit loose, so I used CA on them.

I've turned X-Ray blanks before, so knew it was opaque. I didn't bother painting it or coloring the epoxy.
