The phoenix is a sacred firebird said to have beautiful feathers of gold and red. Its story has roots in many ancient civilizations- most notably the Egyptian and Greek. After 1,000 years the phoenix builds itself a nest of twigs, which then burns fiercely until they are both, reduced to ashes. From the ashes a young phoenix appears, renewing the life cycle of the bird and making the phoenix virtually immortal and invincible. This pen captures the story in detail, from the flames bursting at the tip, to the rising phoenix; it's tail rendered in the clip. Amber crystals on the clip and cap add to the majesty of this regal creature. Features a Parker® style refill. We have taken quality solid components with and chemically darkened it to simulate aged brass, pewter, and copper which results in a gorgeous, long lasting finish.
Each Dungeon Quill is finished with seven coats of cyanoacrylate sanded to 13,000 grit, then polished to a mirror like finish. Cyanoacrylate is the finish used by professional wood turners to produce a high gloss, impact resistant and water proof finish.
