If you suffer from ophidiophobia you might want to look away now. Here’s what arrived in the post today…
I saw this on Amazon and couldn’t resist. It’s so outrageous that it’s passed all the way through bad taste and emerged the other side with a certain swagger. It’s a beast of a pen (in more ways than one), weighing in at around 85g. Half of that is down to the cap alone!
The pen itself is quite slim – I guess to allow for the added (ahem) “decoration”. Perhaps surprisingly it sits quite nicely and comfortably in the hand. You can post the cap, but the only reason I can think you would want to is if you wanted a mini-staff so you could pretend to be an ancient Egyptian high priest or something. In the real world posting the cap ruins the balance of the pen.
Overall quality and finish seem pretty reasonable. A quick test with some Diamine Twilight suggests the nib is on the fine side, but out of the box it seems a reasonable writer.
I’m looking forward to trying it out properly…

I loved your “snakes on a pen” caption! I am guessing it would need to star Hugh Jackman.
