Best Of The Best 2006: Pyramid Scheme

The one-of-a-kind Grayson Tighe Bast fountain pen—named for the Egyptian goddess who protects cats, women, and children—represents a collaboration between Tighe and renowned knife maker Jose de Braga. The pen’s mammoth-ivory overlay is carved to depict scarabs and other Egyptian symbols. Most prominent among these is the goddess Bast, a voluptuous woman wearing a headdress appointed with a single diamond. The overlay’s cutaways reveal the sleek surface of the pen’s titanium body. As with all his pens, Tighe produced and assembled the $12,000 Bast entirely by hand.
