A distinctively designed pen that you can use on daily basis. Simply twist the tip and write away!
Beautifully crafted from Spalted Maple the pen contains one of the most unique colorations. Not only that, the pen may not have a proper radius; 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 slight 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 antique pewter finish and features period armour adornments including a medieval sword, a hand-riveted knight's helmet, and a a fluted armor design on the pen tip.
Available as a ballpoint pen with a Parker style refill. To access the refill on the ballpoint pen, unscrew the tip. Make sure you retain and install the spring on the new refill.
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 Body' in the customization option and upload an image with your text.
