Nonagon means 9 sided. A pen made in an Odd number of sides when its not a casted pen, but a hand turned pen is extremely difficult to make. When you are cutting a pens facets your can cut each side to make the facets even. But when you do them odd, you have to do one at a time and it makes it very hard. The work on this pen is amazing.
Although this pen is one of his Nonagon pens, this pen was made in a tapered style, which makes it even harder to make. Its made in a tapered way similarly shaped like the L139.
