What is short, stubby, and you can use it on daily basis? You guessed it right, it is this 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 sapwood and heartwood colours makes thus pen stunning to look at, yet very functional.
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.
El Toro style pens are only available as fountain pens. The hardware is finished in chrome with black accents. The thread at the back of the pen allow you to attach the cap for extra length and balance.
The fountain pen comes with an Iridium Point nib manufactured in Germany and takes a prefilled cartridge only. To access the ink cartridge, simply unscrew the tip from the middle. The pen is uninked and will ship without the cartridge as they are susceptible to damage; therefore, they are not shipped to protect your purchase.
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 Cap' or 'Customize Body' in the customization option and upload an image with your text.
