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 with knurled pattern on the tip and clip.
The pencil takes a 2mm pencil lead and has a built in sharpener: simply remove the end cap, insert the pencil lead into the tiny opening, and roll the sharpener to and fro. Removing the cap also gives you access to the pencil lead chamber in case you need to refill it.
