3D rotary carved aluminum fountain pen that is 5-1/8 (13cm) long and weighs 1.3oz (37g). The cap is postable and the posted length of the pen is 6-1/2 (16.5cm). Aluminum is a wonderful material to use for pens. It is light in weight yet attractive. Few people realize that, until late in the 19th century, Aluminum was rarer and considered more valuable than Gold or Silver. Aluminum is extremely common these days and for good reason. While today the metal has little intrinsic value of its own, its ability to be creatively worked allows an artist to convert it from the ordinary to the extraordinary.
