Off-piste : Handcrafted fountain pen

Every now and then one of us goes off-piste, so when Dave brought me this pen that he had created, there was only one name for it.

The red is an even deeper, darker red than colour than I could capture in the photos. I’ve even placed it against my Ferrari notebook in one of the photographs, and they have both come out looking a bit paler/orange-er than they do in reality. If you can imagine the colour of a fresh corpuscle, that’s the exact red. (Sorry, wasn’t about to bleed for the sake of the photos. Just take my word for it.)

Off-piste is stunning. ‘Nuf said.
