A stylish pen to go with you everywhere you want. Simply twist and write away!
Hand-crafted from the sapwood and heartwood of Amboyna Burl, the pen showcases one of the most fascinating colour and grain pattern found in nature. The yellowing sapwood, the deep dark red heartwood, the natural presence and imperfections from the bark, and the swirly grain pattern paint a masterpiece. It is interesting to note that Amboyna is technically not a distinct species, but is the name of the burl wood from any of the Pterocarpus species, most commonly Narra (Pterocarpus indicus) and Burma Padauk (Pterocarpus macrocarpus). Both of these trees are native to South-East Asia.
The wood is turned to a barrel shape with any and all imperfections kept in place. The wood was then finished with Pure Tung Oil and Carnauba-based Wax. The Tung Oil penetrates the wood to emphasize the grain and colour. The oil does not contain artificial thinners or cure-accelerants and is approved for food-contact items. The Carnauba-based wax forms a light 'skin' finish which serves as an additional layer of protection. The combination of the two finishes emphasize the beauty of the wood while preserving its natural feel.
The hardware has a black titanium finish with decorative accents. The pen is available as a ballpoint pen that takes a standard Parker style refill.
A unique creation by man using nature's gifts and it all fits right into your hand. Complimentary velvet pouch is included with the purchase; however, for best protection, please consider the wooden pen cases
