The Sculpted Pen from Pat's Pens has a beautiful, undulating shape.

Pat’s Pens, Sculpted #280
$34 as shown
Created from fine, acrylic InLace material in Dyna Blue, Pat’s Sculpted pen shimmers like a deep blue sea. Iridescent, silvery threads are visible through translucent layers of sea blue acrylic. The undulating, outer skin is smooth and glossy and the feel is enhanced by multiple, voluptuous curves.

A gentle twist at the narrow waist extends a ballpoint tip which is surrounded with brilliant platinum plated fittings. The undulating curves line up just right with the shape of my hand giving me a most comfortable fit. The Sculpted pen is refillable using Cross-style refills.

Unfortunately Jean Pierre Lepine’s Free Ride appears to have been discontinued at the time of writing, though it remains available in the meantime (until stocks run out) at PenPlace.com.
