A stylish pen that you can use on daily basis. Simply twist the finial behind the clip and write away!
Crafted from a single piece of Spalted Tamarind, a tree native to tropical Africa, but now is widely planted in all tropical regions of the world. This pen showcases the absolute uniqueness of the sapwood: it is pale yellow and discoloured as a result of decay and fungi (also known as spalting). The wood itself develops a nice luster even before finish is applied making the spalted line more visually striking.
The wood is turned to a barrel shape and 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 titanium gold and platinum finish.
The pen is only available in ballpoint format and takes on a standard Parker style refill. To access the refill, simply unscrew the tip from the middle. 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.
A truly unique creation by nature that fits in your hand. Complimentary velvet pouch is included with the purchase; the pen holder in the images is sold separately.
Note: the dimensions are shown as length of closed pen by height of pen at clip by largest diameter of the wooden body.
