This pen has been designed to capture the essence of a Twister in it’s unique design and feel. Below the section the pen is tapered down, all the way to the power filler, in the same fashion as a funnel cloud.
The resin is transparent, but gradually fades from 100% clear to partially clear like a twister would, picking up debris. The less opaque sections feel grandulated on the outside of the pen and give it a very interesting and comfortable feel.
The resin has a circular cut out swirl design that graduates up the pen, in line with the opaqueness. This combination its light weight and feel of the resin results in a fabulous writing instrument. The feel can not be explained in words, but its its very tactile.
There was much deliberation in the craftsmanship of this piece all the way to the top of the pen, which carries a larger diameter than the section. To top is off the top of the cap features a concave finish to imitate how the top of a funnel would be. This is a marvelous pen numbered to 18 worldwide, with an MSRP of $995
