To start the new year right, you have to find a Light Tortoise!
Nah… I am just talking sh*t. :-p
To start the new year right, you definitely don’t need to find a light tortoise — I am sure there are a million other ways to start it right — but finding one wouldn’t hurt though. This came as a spurt of the moment find, so after a few click of button, a deal was struck and the rest is history.
Light tortoise, though beautiful, often becomes discolored with use. That is somewhat the norm with this particular pattern, though there are still a few out there retains their original luster of color. I have no complaints with mine, I have seen worse examples out there (i.e., severe discoloration, cracks, and more cracks).
I have admired this pen for five and half years. Finally, I can close this chapter and move to the next one. 🙂
The hunt continues…
