About the Asgard:
This pen is named after the Twin-Peaked Mount Asgard and its famous Twin Flat Topped cylindrical rock towers. Mount Asgard is located in the Auyuittuq National Park on the Cumberland Peninsula of Baffin Island in Nunavut Canada. This pen is so named because I thought the description of the location also described the pen. The large TWIN Flat-top ends of the pen emulate the twin flat topped rock towers of Mount Asgard.
The Asgard is a clipless INVERTED style pen with it's widest diameters at the ends. It's about 5 1/2" long with larger diameter ends of about 11/16" that tapers to a smaller diameter of about 9/16" at the connection. Since the shape of the pen was somewhat straight-- that is void of any obvious curves-- I wanted to keep this theme throughout the pen. So I used a straight shape for the section.
Asgard Options and Upgrades:
Due to the unique shape of the Asgard, their are very few other options available. However it does have a few: You can order it in a smaller (Midi) size, and your choice of nib sizes. You can also order it with a custom BUTTON on the cap that keeps the pen from rolling. As with most other JEB's PENs, the Asgard can be ordered in the materials shown or you can choose your own material to make the pen your own one-of-a-kind. Inking systems available are cartridge/converter (C/C) only. Nib sizes are #5 or #6, and are available in several finishes: polished steel, 2-tone, Ruthenium (#5 only) or Black Oxide (#6 only). Current tip sizes available are x-fine, fine, medium, broad, or two sizes of italic.
I also offer a variety of hand-made Pen Props and Pen Buttons. You can order a Pen Prop in a material to match your pen, or any one of the wooden styles made in a variety of stained and dyed colors. The Pen Buttons are available for any of the clipless pens.
About this Material:
This material is an Acrylic Acetate called "Sapphire Blue". As you can see, it's so called because of the color and pattern. The pattern is called CRUSH because it's made up of small "crushed" pieces of acrylic. It's made by first making a batch of solid colored acrylic, then it's crushed up before putting back into a mold. Once the crushed pieces are placed in the mold, it's filled again with another solid color-- sometimes the same color, other times a contrasting color. Once it cures, you have a solid piece of material with the crushed pattern. It creates a very vibrant color, so it's a very popular pattern. You'll see several other colors used on various pens (such as Cranberry Red, Orange Crush, and Tortoise Shell just to name a few).
