Authentic, ancient Mayan details abound; The pen cap features a stepped pyramid, topped by the face of the sun god, Kinich Ahua, whose tongue it sticking out in request of sacrifices. Below this is wrapped the serpent god, Quetzelcoatl, a deity revered in ancient Mesoamerica, and god of the morning star. Topping the clip is the most revered symbol of all, the Jaguar. Rulers, warriors, and priests revered this feline. Below the Jaguar is a sacrificial knife, a symbol of ritual sacrifice as well a symbol for a fierce and formidable people that built an empire, and whose descendants still walk the earth. The pen band captures each of the 20 Mayan sun signs in extraordinary detail. The Mayans kept their own systems of time, starting from a day 0. Their Tzolkin Calendar is made up of 13 repetitions of 20 different days or sun signs depicted on the band.
Earlier this month, I was tasked with finding a perfect farewell gift for the “person who has everything”. What could be better than a hand crafted pen? Searching through your amazing unique pens, I found one that was absolutely perfect – an American Black Wattle fountain pen.
I’d like to say a hug THANK YOU to Graham for the pen and after sales service I have received. It is a beautiful pen (wood with silver trimming) for my anniversary. I had issues with the way it was writing and Graham happily sorted it all out, Even sending me new nibs and an extra stylus pen (matching the gift pen).
Thanks again, I recommend doing business with you, and hope to add another of your pens to my collection soon.
