****Winner of the 2021 Pen World Reader's Choice Awards POY - Pen of the Year !
This is our newest limited edition, a design we call the Diamondtree. It's an Asian themed tree made of platinum dust with mother of pearl diamond shapes. Designed by S.C. Franklin and maki-e artwork by Katsunobu Nishihara.
- The base pen is our Model 40 Panther, one of our earliest designs with the long cap feature. Most Panthers have a band in the cap, but this one is one long solid piece, a perfect landscape for the tree.
