This beautiful and well balanced handcrafted pen is made with very rare Dall Sheep horn. This is truly one of a kind - it is extremely difficult to find pens made with Dall Sheep Horn!

This is a postable and extremely well balanced and very comfortable to hold and write pen - a real pleasure. The beauty of the pen may distract you from your writing and will certainly get admiring looks.

The horn was picked up while on a Dall Sheep hunt in the rugged mountains of Alaska.

The beautiful body is matched, for a distinguished look, with Rhodium plating with gold accents. The balance, feel and smooth writing make this pen a pleasure to own and use. It is certainly going to be a pen of distinction and will gain admiring glances and questions!

Don't hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have.

"Dall Sheep (Ovis dalli dalli) inhabit the mountain ranges of Alaska. These white creatures are most notable for the males’ massive curled horns. Females (known as ewes) also carry horns, but theirs are shorter and more slender, and only slightly curved. Until rams reach the age of 3 years, they tend to resemble the ewes quite a bit. After that, continued horn growth makes the males easily recognizable. Horns grow steadily during spring, summer, and early fall. In late fall or winter, horn growth slows and eventually ceases. This start-and-stop growth results in a pattern of rings called annuli which are spaced along the length of the horn, and can help determine age. Dall rams as old as 16 years have been seen, and ewes have been known to reach 19 years of age. Generally, however, a 12 year old sheep is considered quite old."
