The Diarist's pen has classic, slim look that is enhanced by the beautiful and complex look of the grain. This pen comes in two pieces, so a two-toned look is also possible. However, I felt that these pieces of lacewood shouldn't be separated from one another. I turned each piece simultaneously to help ensure that they remained close to the same width so that the sleekness would be preserved. This pen is finished with a semi-gloss lacquer and buffed with rottenstone to protect and accentuate its beauty.
