About the Name:
The PUTHA (pronounced "PU-the") is named after Putha Hiunchuli (also called Dhaulagiri VII). It's a mountain in Nepal and part of the Dhaulagiri Range. It lies at the west end of the Dhaulagiri II chain and is 7246M high, making it the 95th highest mountain in the world.
NOTE: If the pen style looks familiar-- it's not a NEW style. I renamed it from "Kanjut" after I found the name had a few different meanings in other languages (one of them not so nice). So I thought it would be appropriate to change the name.
Putha Dimensions, Features and Options:
This pen was a special custom order, and was very challenging to meet the clients requirements. The client was a pen that was only 5 1/4" long, use a #6 nib, a postable cap, AND a full size converter. Whew! So although it may look pretty simple, there's a lot packed into this little sleeper. I guess you could say that the main features of this understated style is that I was able to pack all those features just mentioned into one pen. The Putha is fitted with a #6 nib which can be ordered in either a 2-tone or polished steel finish and tip sizes in fine, medium or broad. Clip finishes available are 24k gold and Rhodium. Inking systems available for this pen are cartridge/converter (c/c), eyedropper (ED) or button filler. It can be ordered with the Piston inking system, but requires a slightly longer barrel. The current inking systems available for this pen are cartridge/converter (c/c), eyedropper (ED), or Button-filler.
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 Pen and Material:
This material is an Acrylic Acetate called "Cat's Eye". It's most likely so called because the color and pattern is similar to a Cat's Eye stone. The combination of the colors and swirl pattern create a very understated pattern that's highly desireable. The Cat's Eye acrylic is the most favorite of all the PFP colors ordered. If there was a contest of all the colors, I'm sure this would win "fan favorite".
