Koa is luxurious tropical wood native to Hawaii marked by stripes of golden brown that seem to shimmer in bright sunlight. Koa and its unique grain patterns have emerged as symbol for the islands and is a favorite medium for local artisans. For main-land wood workers, finding good quality pieces is a rare treat. I have only enough of this to make 5 pens with the distinctive figure you see in this photograph. I have chosen to use the finest rhodium and 24k gold accents to bring out the wood color, however, if you would like to couple this wood with different adornments, please contact me, and we can work out the details. The nib is the iridium tipped for exceptional ink flow, and it comes with a piston converter to accommodate for your specialty inks. As an added convenience, I include an international ink cartridge that can be replaced at any office supply retailer. Style also available in Rollerball.
