Get the feel of the tropics with this writing instrument made from Red Palm. Simply twist at the halves and write away!
The wood used is native to the tropical regions worldwide and it has one of the most peculiar grain features. The dark red and brown wood body is criss crossed with the straw-like black grain strands to form a one of a kind pattern.
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 has a chrome finish with gold accents on the rings and clip and is available as a ballpoint pen or a mechanical pencil.
The ballpoint pen takes a standard Parker style refill. To access the refill, unscrew the writing tip. Make sure you retain and install the spring on the new refill.
The mechanical pencil takes 0.5mm pencil leads. To access the eraser, separate the two halves; to access the lead chamber, remove the eraser.
