tortoiseshell celluloid rod

Our Transparent Tortoise is ideally suited for thicker objects such as knobs and handles, where a light appearance is desired.  Like real tortoiseshell, it can be backed with foil if a fully transparent effect is not desired.  For less transparency, also take a look at our Dark Tortoise.


An Oldwin prototype, sans nib and clip, turned from our Transparent Tortoise.  More on this pen and others similar at our Celluloid Gallery.
