This rollerball or fountain pen might rarely leave your hand! Not only will you write with it constantly, but you'll show off to everyone around you. Simply unscrew the cap 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. In this particular piece there is evidence of growth defect and crack around the sapwood giving the piece even more unique features.
The pen's wood 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.
Both the rollerball and fountain pen hardware are finished with rhodium with 22K gold accents.
The rollerball pen comes with a fine-tipped (0.6mm) ceramic roller cartridge refill from Schmidt. The rollerball tip ensures smooth and even lines to your hand-writing.
The fountain pen comes with an Iridium Point medium nib manufactured in Germany and takes an ink well or a prefilled cartridge. The pen is uninked and will ship with the ink well attachment only. The prefilled cartridges are susceptible to damage and therefore are not shipped to protect your purchase.
To access the refill or the ink, simply unscrew the tip from the middle. In case of the rollerball pen, make sure you don't lose the spring that goes at the end of the refill.
Customization for this pen is not available only on the yellowish sapwood. 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.
