Newest Acquisitions (Virtual "Show & Tell") ~ part 201

And now for something completely different...

Jerred: "This particular pen is the Delta WE Aromatherapy. The WE stands for "What Else?" and to be honest, I'm not entirely sure what this is supposed to mean. The other pens in the "What Else?" collection had little chili pepper charms that screwed into the clip, meant as a charm to ward off the Evil Eye."

 

 
"The Aromatherapy series is a little different. Instead of a chili pepper charm, the pens carry a small wood diffuser in the clip."

 

"The pen also includes a bottle of scented aromatherapy oil as well as spare diffusers and holders should one become lost. It's an... interesting pen, to say the least."



"The pen itself is made of an orange-veined, dark brown acrylic and is the "energy (soil)" model. It's one of Delta's smaller models, and has their classic hand-carved sterling cap band and 14kt, #5.5 sized nib. The nib is, as is often the case with Delta's later pens, a lovely writer.

Unfortunately the box I received was for the "harmony (sea)" model, and thus contains the wrong accessories. That said, the fact that I was able to get a bottle of the oil at all is rather rare."

 


"The pen also comes with an instruction manual and some rather amusingly translated promotional materials."

"As always, Delta's design philosophy was just a little bit different than anyone else."

Another handsome addition to Jerred's Delta pen collection (and a very interesting one at that :) Our thanks, as always, to Jerred for his great photos & write ups about his newest acquisitions!
