The wood of choice was Ziricote – a tree native to Mexico and Central America. Ziricote has medium to dark brown colour with black growth rings intermixed leaving a “landscape” grain pattern. Not only that, the wood contain piece of the sapwood showing further contrast between the heartwood and sapwood. In addition, Ziricote is reported to be naturally resistant to decay; this pen has the potential of becoming like an heirloom to be passed through generations.
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.
