Genuine Rattlesnake Skin Writing Pens fountain & rollerball

$1,375

This collection of fine writing instruments is made from genuine Diamondback Rattlesnake skin handcrafted in the Sonoran Desert. Each skin is carefully prepared and tanned. The skin is meticulously prepared for the pen. The skin is then cast into a pen blank. This process has taken over a year of trial and error before the desired beauty and consistency has been achieved. The final step is to turn the blank on a wood lathe to the precise size for the pen. Each pen is unique as the Diamondback Rattlesnake has a variation of colors and patterns.

The WoodNotch craftsmen are four brothers (the four oldest of ten children), striving for excellence in creating custom masterpieces in each pen that they craft. This Kickstarter company understands quality and fine detail.  Customer satisfaction is guaranteed! The profit from their work is re-invested into the company but ultimately saved for their college education. Please consider supporting these young men as they build their business, WoodNotch.com.
