A Pair Made Out Of Vintage Material

I had made up the pencil first for Tamer and after he seen the pencil he wanted a pen to match.
The pencil takes 2mm leads and advances like a regular mechanical pencil so it is not really a clutch pencil like most 2mm pencils.
This material I was told is over 80 years old and is wrapped celluloid.  Meaning it is wrapped around a rod and then the rod is removed so there is a spiral seam on this material as well as it has a built in hole through the center.  The pen I made to take Cross roller ball refills as I find them to be very smooth.

Any way I was quite pleased with how they all turned out and I hope Tamer is as well.
