About the Jannu:
The Jannu is named after MOUNT JANNU, the 32nd highest mountain in world. The official name of this peak is Kumbhakarna, and it is located in Nepal India (I didn't think "Kumbhakarna" wouldn't quite fit as a pen name). It's also called "Phoktanglungma" (still too long!), which literally means "Mountain with Shoulders". It is more notable for its climbing challenge as it's one of the hardest peaks to climb.

Jannu Style and Dimensions:
The most prominent feature of this pen is the two-tone color design. I thought the name fit because the style because the white finial on the red & white pen reminds me of a snow capped mountain. The Jannu has an oversized cap with a round finial and a tapered edge at the base that tapers down to meet the barrel. It's two-tone style is perfect for using your imagination and creating a pen with a unique color combination or just for adding a little flair to your pen. It's fitted with a #6 nib. Nib finishes available for STEEL nibs are: 2-tone, polished steel, Black Oxide (#6 only), or Ruthenium (#5 only). Current tip sizes are x-fine, fine, medium, broad, and two italics (1.1 both; 1.4 for #5 only, and 1.5 for #6 only).
Jannu Options and Upgrades:
Since the Jannu is fairly plain as far as hardware goes, you could upgrade it with a variety of accent bands at various location. The standard pen is a cartridge/converter (C/C), but could be ordered as an eyedropper, button, or piston filler. 14 & 18K Gold nibs are also available as a special order.
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 or dyed colors. The Pen Buttons are available for any of the clipless pens.
About this Material:
Both materials used for this pen are Italian Acrylics. The main color is called ONYX, and the secondary color is called SAND. The Onyx has thick swirls of brown running throughout the deep black & pearl gray base. The solid Sand accent color matches perfectly with the brown in the base material, as does the silver-tone hardware match up with the pearl gray. The material was one of those lucky finds-- both were off the shelf material and I had to take a chance they'd match.
