Raven Steals the Sun by James Peter Johnson

James Peter Johnson is an artist and carver, born and raised in Juneau, Alaska. He belongs to the Tlingit Ch’áak’ Dakl’aweidi Clan (Eagle Killerwhale). His great great grandfather was Chief Gusht’eiheen (“Spray off the Dorsal Fin”) of the Dakl’aweidi of the Xutsnoowú Kwáan (Angoon, Alaska). His great grandfather was Chief Jimmy Johnson, and his grandfather was Chief Peter Johnson, after whom he is named. His strong ancestral history led him to purse the Tlingit art form. His late father, Franklin Johnson, first encouraged him to begin carving. Johnson has dedicated his life to continuing the Tlingit art form, honoring his ancestors through his work.

Mr. Johnson's design portrays the traditional Tlingit origin story of a Raven bringing light into the world. Each pen has this Tlingit artwork silkscreened on the stainless barrel, varnished in a matte clear coating and finished with antique silver accents. The Smithsonian top ring is engraved with its individual number and then complete with the sun logo on the finial. Each rollerball is packaged in a commemorative tube with the Raven's origin story on the label.












The great thing about Reto is you can convert them from a rollerball to a ballpoint using Parker-style ballpoint refills or you can use refill with another rollerball short capless Schmidt refill in this pen.  whatever your writing style Retro 51 has you covered.
