Buckeye is one of the softest and lightest hardwoods native to the united states. It's low strength and bland appearance limit it to basic utility purposes, however the burl sections of buckeye are much more prized, with their light-on-dark knot clusters, and unique, almost black discolorations make them highly sought after. The wood has been stabilized (impregnated with a hard resin) and dyed blue that provides a rich color. This pen is equipped with a high quality, german manufactured #5 bock nib and comes with one standard universal fountain pen cartridge that is easily replaceable and readily available at office supply stores, as well as a schmidt piston ink converter so that you are able to use your choice of bottled ink.

Every one of my pens are individually handmade by me in my shop in north carolina using high quality components with precision and very close attention to detail and style that ensures a truly one of a kind, exceptional final product. Preparing each pen that i make includes cutting, drilling and epoxying the body of the pen, turning to a final shape on the lathe, sanding numerous times to achieve a smooth surface, and then polished to a lustrous shine with a durable finish before final assembly. Due to the quality of the products as well as the additional time, care and my attempts to perfection that i use in crafting my pens, you can be assured that each of my pens are crafted to be as flawless as possible and that each one goes through my personal but rigorous quality review before being available.The pen pictured is the actual pen you will receive and includes a small box and velvet drawstring pouch ready for gifting.
