Heavy duty, practical mechanical pen or pencil with a 5.6mm lead. Due to the large size of the refill, it uses gravity to propel itself. When protracting it, place your hand under the tip to prevent the pen or pencil lead from falling to the ground.
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 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 and it comes with a ballpoint or pencil style
The ballpoint comes with a mini pen refill. To access the refill, take out the pen attachment and unscrew the cap at the back.
The pencil comes with a 5.6mm thick black 4B pencil lead. To access the integrated sharpener and the refill chamber, unscrew the end cap. The inside of the cap contains four tiny blades which are used to sharpencil the lead by twisting motion.
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 Tip Section' or 'Customize Clip Section' 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 pencil holder in the images is sold separately.
Note: the weight is in grams; the dimensions are in millimeters and shown as length of closed pencil by height of pencil with clip by largest diameter of the wooden body.
