This pen was kindly sent to me by Grifos Pens in Italy. Made out of Sterling silver and 5,000 year old bog oak, this is a fascinating pen.

I have two Viceroys in my collection: the Victorian finish and this Barley finish. Both pens are made out of solid Sterling silver and have wonderfully smooth nibs that are a joy to use. This finish is a little bit more subdued than the Victorian, but both are wonderful pens.
This beautiful pen was sent to me by John, which is clearly an incredible generous gesture. I love this pen: the weight, size, and feeling of it are magnificent and it writes just beautifully too. I have also done a full review of this pen.
