Beautifully hand-crafted from the sapwood of Amboyna Burl, the pen showcases that in a burl, the sapwood can have character. From the swirly yellow to a hint of light gray - they are all present here. 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). In addition, burl sections of Burma Padauk (Pterocarpus macrocarpus) are also sold under the name Amboyna. Both of these trees are native to South-East Asia.
The wood 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 has a chrome finish and only available in ballpoint format using a standard Parker style refill. To access the refill, simply unscrew the tip from the middle. Make sure you retain and install the spring on the new refill.
Customization for this pen is available. 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 'Customize Body' in the customization option and upload an image with your text.
A truly unique creation by nature that fits in your hand. Complimentary velvet pouch is included with the purchase; the pen holder in the images is sold separately.
Note: the weight is in grams; the dimensions are in millimeters and shown as length of closed pen by height of pen with clip by largest diameter of the wooden body.
