This is an executive fountain pen that is a joy to write with, fascinating to look at, and a privilege to own. Simply unscrew the cap and write away!
Beautifully crafted from Spalted Maple the pen contains one of the most unique colorations. Not only that, some parts of the wood body may feel oval. The spalting, which is essentially caused by decay and fungi, weakens the wood. When sanded, the weak wood will lose more material leading to the irregular shape.
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 threads 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.
A truly remarkable wood created by nature that can fit right 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.
