The Best of the Best 2003: Pens - Loiminchay

  • Ken Kessler

The moderately sized, Art Deco–inspired Loiminchay Opus represents a departure from the pen maker’s previous collections of extra-large pens featuring Eastern design influences. Finished in black or cobalt blue lacquers, fitted with 18-karat two-tone gold nibs, and sporting a pearl at one end and a sapphire at the other, the $750 Opus is truly a jewel.
