Sculpted Arbor Twist Pen in Pink Ivory

$64.00

The Pen:
This attractive twist pen was created using the Sculpted Arbor hardware, which is plated heavily in 24K Gold. The pieces are engraved, painted black and finished in a very hard epoxy to resist scratching.

The Species:
Pink Ivory trees are said to be both rare and valuable, and have been rumored to be “rarer than diamonds,” although this is not so much the case. However, the tree is protected and sustainability maintained in South Africa, only felled by very limited permit.

According to folklore, the tree is considered sacred to the Zulus in South Africa and only members of the royal family were allowed to possess it until 1879. The Zulu king would possess a pink ivory knob kerry, a stick with one end a knob, and wear jewelry also made from the wood.

The Process:
The hand selected pieces for this pen were turned by Jack D. Ciallella on a lathe. They were sanded through twelve grits of sandpaper until perfectly smooth. A final 10-coat finish of cyanoacrolate (”CA” Superglue) was applied, then buffed until shining beautifully. This method of finishing gives your pens the most durable exterior possible and a glisten that will last for many years.

Includes Gift Box.
