West African Zebrawood or Zebrano was used for this pen. It is rather unusual wood as the heartwood is a light brown or cream color with dark blackish brown streaks vaguely resembling a zebra’s stripes. The pen was turned from a single piece of timber to enable the grain of eack section to align when the tip is retracted.
The metal fittings have a satin chrome finish to contrast with the highly polished wood. A ribbed rubber grip is incorporated to increase comfort for those who like to write!
A black Cross type refill is fitted as standard, but can easy be changed by carefully fulling the two halves of the pen apart. This standard refill can be purchased at most stationary stores.
The pen in the picture is the one you will receive. If you are interested in multiple pens, please contact us. Since each pen is a unique work of art, exact duplicates are not possible. But, we will do our best to create duplicates of the pen, using the same wood and finish.
