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!
Hand-crafted from the sapwood and heartwood of Amboyna Burl, the pen showcases one of the most fascinating colour and grain pattern found in nature. The yellowing sapwood, the deep dark red heartwood, the natural presence and imperfections from the bark, and the swirly grain pattern paint a masterpiece. It is interesting to note that Amboyna is technically not a distinct species, but is the name of the burl wood from any of the Pterocarpus species, most commonly Narra (Pterocarpus indicus) and Burma Padauk (Pterocarpus macrocarpus). Both of these trees are native to South-East Asia.
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.
The pen hardware is finished with chrome with gold accents. The threads at the back of the pen allow you to attach the cap giving you extra length and balance. The pen comes as a rollerball or a fountain pen.
- The rollerball pen comes with a fine-tipped (0.6mm) ceramic roller cartridge refill from Schmidt.
- The fountain pen comes with an Iridium Point broad nib manufactured in Germany and takes an ink well or a prefilled cartridge.
This is an executive pen that is a joy to write with, fascinating to look at, and a privilege to own. Complementary velvet pouch is included with the purchase; however, for best protection, please consider the wooden pen cases.
