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.
The wood used is Banksia Seed Pod native to Australia. Once the seed pod releases the seeds, numerous holes are left; those holes are then filled with a resin and a colour. The resulting blank is turned leaving a completely unique creation. Every pod has different number of seeds situation in different areas of it; therefore no two pens made from it are the same.
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.
