A unique stylish pen that you'll never let go. Twist the halves and write away!
Beautifully crafted from African Blackwood, a tree native to the dry savanna regions of Central and South Africa. The sapwood is light yellowish colour while the heartwood ranges from completely black to black with dark brown hue along the grain. The wood, especially the heartwood, is quite challenging to work with, but the reward is shown in a distinct shine that remains visible for a long time. Depending on how the tree has grown, the sapwood and heartwood can be intertwined accounting for some of the most beautiful contrasts
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 available as a ballpoint pen with a Cross style refill. To access the refill, separate the two halves applying consistent force; then unscrew the refill from the twist mechanism.
Customization for this pen is not available due to the dark colour of the wood.
This pen might rarely leave your hand! Not only will you write with it constantly, but you'll show off to everyone around you. Complimentary velvet pouch is included with the purchase; the pen holder in the images is sold separately.
