Here are some photos of the new Omas Michelangelo, with Omas Press Release info and photos! The LE is made of the same marble as the David sculpture - Carrara marble from Tuscany, Italy. It's a pretty sophisticated piece so I assume it's gonna be pricey!

The link works for me - a bit over the top for me and way out of my price range. MSRP at $5950.00

I like that they used Italian Carrara marble in remembrance of him - seems quite fitting. But with a 6K price point I'm just as likely to buy one of his sculptures as the pen  :lticaptd:

Ugh! That horrendous step is where I'd tend to hold it. That's one I'm glad doesn't tempt me.

Sorry for the lack of pictures attached to this post! I posted the article from my phone and therefore the only way I could get photos up was to use my own personal website.

 

Anyway, I'm not certain that the photographs do justice to the pen. It isn't easy to photograph!

 

I'm not crazy about pens that look so complicated, but I do like the interesting use of marble as a material...
