Brian,
Open wide and say "Ahhhhhh!" :lol: Seriously, the piece on the right looks like something you would use to mark metal (the flat head and the pointed end tell me you would put it in palce and tap it to dent something). The other piece ... I have no idea ...:(. The person who gave it to you didn't shed any light on teh original use?? - Chris

No Chris they did not. They knew I was into calligraphy so they gave it to me and said that they believed it has something to do with making thin lines and both pieces are suppost to work together some how. There are alot of artists here so I thought someone could educate me on what this is and how to use it.

Brian, Open wide and say "Ahhhh!" Seriously, the piece on the left looks like a tool for marking metal. The flat part looks like it is for a tap hammer and the point would make the mark. The other piece ... I have no idea. - Chris

Erm... Once upon a time in (I believe) a 3D arts class, we decorated Easter eggs in the traditional Polish style (pisanki??) and that thing on the left looks a whole lot like the tool we used to put on the hot wax in thin lines. Now, it's been at least three years since that class, so I could be waaaaay off the mark here, but that's what it immediately made me think of. Don't know about the thing on the right--maybe to clean it out? I don't know.

Good luck finding the answer! And maybe post a picture in the Cafe Guerbois board so everyone can see?

Wow... no idea what it is. But it's kinda fun to see all the guesses. :D could be a new WC contest... guess the tool... :lol:

Brian, if you find out what it is, make sure you post 'cause I'm dying of curiosity. ok. maybe not dying, but sure puzzled. Can't even figure out a way to google it. :rolleyes:

This is a fine line pen as can be found at Michael's or Dick Blick. Here is the link:

It is used with ink or thinned paint.

It is similar to the batik/pysanky (Ukranian Easter Egg) tool shown in the link below, but the batik pens are designed to handle melting wax so an all metal handle would be hard to hold on to.

Post your results with it, Brian!

I agree it looks more dental than artsy...
