You've often heard of designer shoes, but you're not going to find that here. Instead, you're looking at a designer pen whose hardware is designed by the accomplished pen designer David Broadwell. It features 3D art designs on the exposed accent rings, bands, and caps.
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 pen's wood 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 is only available in rollerball style and comes with a fine-tipped (0.6mm) ceramic roller refill from Schmidt. The rollerball tip ensures smooth and even lines to your hand-writing. To access the refill, simply unscrew the tip from the middle.
Customization for this pen is not available due to the black colour of the wood.
Own a piece of history in your hands and admire it every time you write! Complimentary velvet pouch is included with the purchase; the pen holder in the images is sold separately.
