Stone and Steel

Serpentine is a natural stone that ranges in hue from green to gray to black, and when expertly polished, as in the case of the Serpentine Stone pen from Grayson Tighe, its true and complex character is revealed. No two pens within the limited edition of 18 fountain pens and 18 rollerball pens are exactly alike, since each is handcrafted by master pen maker Tighe using age-old turning, engraving, and finishing techniques. The mossy earth tones of the vase-shaped stone barrel are a perfect counterpoint to the linear design on the pen’s stainless steel cap and trim. The fountain pen, priced at $5,500, features an 18-karat-gold two-tone nib. The rollerball model is priced at $5,300. (905.735.1725, www.tighepen.com)
