Each pen is sanded down to 12,000 grit (a 16 step process) and finished off w/ 3 coats of shellac/boiled linseed oil mixture.
Please note that all pens are made when ordered, and the color/grain of the wood might come out slightly different than the image posted.
Handcrafted from Zebrawood
Microberlinia, also known as Zebrawood, is imported from central Africa, (Gabon, Cameroon, and Congo). The heartwood is a pale golden yellow, distinct from the very pale color of the sapwood and features narrow streaks of dark brown to black. Zebrawood can also be a pale brown with regular or irregular marks of dark brown in varying widths.
It is a heavy, hard wood with a somewhat coarse texture, often with an interlocked or wavy grain. The interlocked grain of this wood, like that of many tropical woods, can make it difficult to work. It is also a decorative exotic wood, that was used in Cadillac and Mercedes-Benz automobiles.
