This pen is a luxury of writing instruments and you can choose between a rollerball pen or a fountain pen. Simply unscrew the cap and write away!
Crafted from Afzelia Burl, tree native to Africa and Southeast Asia, this is a tree that has a very defined reddish brown heartwood and pale yellowish white sapwood. The combination of the wood grain of the burl and the reddish colour with dark spots makes thus pen stunning to look at, yet very functional.
The pen's wood body is turned to a cylindrical shape and 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 that serves as an additional layer of protection. The combination of the two finishes emphasize the beauty of the wood while preserving the natural feel of the wood.
The rollerball pen comes with a fine-tipped (0.6mm) ceramic roller cartridge refill from Schmidt. The rollerball tip ensures smooth and even lines to your hand-writing.
The fountain pen comes with an Iridium Point fine nib manufactured in Germany and takes an ink well or a prefilled cartridge. The pen is uninked and will ship with the ink well attachment only. The prefilled cartridges are susceptible to damage in cold temperatures and therefore are not shipped to protect your purchase.
To access the refill or the ink, simply unscrew the tip from the middle. In case of the rollerball pen, make sure you don't loose the spring that goes at the end of the refill.
Customization for this pen is available although not recommended due to the deep dark colour of the wood. Customization comes in the form of an inscription of up to 5 words that will be burnt onto the wood in one or two lines matching, as closely as possible, the font you provide. To have your pen customized, simply select 'Customiaze Cap' or 'Customize Body' in the customization option and upload an image with your text.
This pen would rarely leave your hand! Not only you'll write with it constantly, but you'll show off this beautiful hand-crafted writing instrument to everyone around you.
