A unique stylish pen that you'll never let go. Twist the tip 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.
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.
Unique pen that is a joy to use and fascinating to look at. The hardware has a two-tone chrome finish made up of gloss and satin chrome.
Available as a ballpoint pen with a Parker style refill. To access the refill separate the tip from the body and unscrew the mechanism. Make sure you retain and install the spring on the new refill.
Customization for this pen is available only on the sapwood section. 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.
