Scales of Justice Rotacrylic Pen Blank
The Scales of Justice Pen Blank. The imagery of balancing the scales dates back to that of the ancient Egyptians and Greeks. The Hellenic Goddess Themis was the embodiment of divine order, law, and custom, in her aspect as the personification of the divine rightness of law. However, perhaps a more direct connection to the actual scales is credited to Dike (Themis's daughter), who was often portrayed carrying the scales. Today the sales continue to be a popular legal symbol measuring a case's support and opposition and is often seen as part of a lawyer's mantra. What a great gift this will make for anyone in the legal profession!
This amazing blank involved many hours of design cutting on a CNC, including thousands of lines of code. Once cut, the upper blank was recast, in copper resin. The matching blank for the other barrel has no image.
The pen blank will fit a mid-size pen kit (Jr Gent II/Jr Statesman/Triton etc) Because of the double casting and the intricate design, there is a chance of encountering a small bubble. If you do, it can easily be filled with some of the sanding dust and CA or epoxy. Painted tubes are recommended.
