THUYA BURL is the pinnacle of desire and luxury. coming from Morocco, this wood is a rich caramel color with swirling grain and tiny knots known as eyes. This is by far the most difficult of woods to work as it is very oily and prone to shatter on the lathe. I have chosen to use rhodium hardware with black titanium accents to frame this unique wood. The stylus measures 4 5/8" from point to end cap. It s 5 1/4" long with the cap affixed. At the grip, the stylus is 3/8" in diameter and sweeps up to 1/2" +/- at the fullest point. This pen is designed to be perfectly balanced for effortless writing without posting the cap. It comes with a high quality schmidt cartridge. Refills are available where ever fine office supplies are sold. Style also available in Fountain.
