An exquisite pen whose hardware is designed by the accomplished pen designer David Broadwell. It features 3D art designs on the exposed accent rings, bands, and cap.
Not only that, the Bog Oak wood from Ukraine is equally stunning. Bog Oak is essentially an oak tree that has been buried in an acidic environment for over 5000 years. The acidic environment slowly pigments the entire tree black. This is a natural phenomenon and no stains, dyes, or artificial colours have been used. In addition, the wood comes with a dating certificate indicating the approximate age of the tree.
The wooden body has a barrel shape and is 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 components are cast, polished and plated with a durable two micron 22k gold plate and rhodium. The threads at the back of the pen allow you to attach the cap giving you extra length and balance. The pen comes as a rollerball or a fountain pen.
- The rollerball pen comes with a fine-tipped (0.6mm) ceramic roller cartridge refill from Schmidt.
- The fountain pen comes with an Iridium Point broad nib manufactured in Germany and takes an ink well or a prefilled cartridge.
