Limited Vertex Bundle
For the first time, we’re offering a Vertex Bundle, two Vertexes (yes we know technically it’s vertices) bundled together with a decent discount built in cause you’re buying them together. Plus two is always better than one, right? The first Vertex Bundle features the Skadi Vertex Special Release, our first Norse mythology-themed Vertex and the brand new Garm Vertex Limited Release. Dramatically different types of resin, but they work together in harmony. Bring these two into your collection in this bundle and you’ll save $50 dollars in direct price markdown.
The Skadi Vertex Special Release is fully-machined from beautiful UK produced resin that we’ve sourced from Turner’s Workshop. The material is a “granite” or chip resin made up of predominantly two materials. The materials are a light green with some lovely shimmer and a dark blue that also have some lovely chatoyance to it; the combination brings to mind the chill wind off the waters off the north while it blows over snow-dusted trees and meadows. The finished pens brought to mind that chill just in looking at them, the feeling of the winters and the northern lights on the blue-black sky, it just felt right that we’d draw from Norse mythology. We landed on Skadi specifically because the first thing that came to mind when we thought about the material was “frost giants” and she’s the perfect example of that while also being an attested figure in numerous works throughout history. To us, this pen is the perfect fit for Skadi. When you select your Skadi, you’ll be prompted to choose from three grip section options: Blue Transparent, Light Green (Coke Bottle) Transparent, Mint Translucent, or Smoke Transparent. The ever-capable Ishmael Salleh has created some custom artwork once again featuring some amazing Norse-themed images and styles to convey the idea we were going for. The lids look amazing with his artwork lasered into them.
The Garm Vertex Limited Release features material created by our own Zoe in our shop here in Mesa, Arizona. With her talents and eye for mixing colors, she created this amazing resin with a blue base swirled well with white then added elements of green at the ends of the resin. Once machined, sanded, and polished, the depth of the material can be appreciated. The blue and green have fine mica added that trick the eye into seeing movement, while the white has been left flat and mostly opaque but sections of the blue pull into the white and add another layer that loses the chatoyance and ends up a lighter blue. It’s an absolutely amazing-looking material and feels great in the hand as well. The finished product was absolutely amazing, and we immediately knew we’d have trouble finding the right name for this pen. With the help of Ishmael, we decided to expand our Mythology Inspired Vertex releases and break them into two main categories: Norse and Greco-Roman. The Garm Vertex Special Release is our second official Norse mythology-inspired Vertex, though it also takes inspiration from the ocean in the form of the Garm glacier. We ended up being a bit indecisive on this one, but the material simply shines. When you select your Garm, you’ll be prompted to choose from four grip section options: Dark Green Transparent, Light Green (Coke Bottle) Transparent, Mint Translucent, or Teal Transparent. The ever-capable Ishmael Salleh has created some custom artwork once again featuring some amazing Norse-themed images and styles to convey the idea we were going for. The lids look amazing with his artwork lasered into them.
