The Pencil:
You’ll find numerous uses around the house and shop for this heavy duty, practical and attractive mechanical pencil. The 5.6mm (nearly 1/4″ dia.) lead will never break. The pencil includes a precision, mechanism has an integrated sharpener in the cap. Includes an 80mm length of lead. Graphite and “Magic Lead” colored lead refills are available separately. Lead sharpener unscrews from cap for precision sharpening in hand.

The Species:
This wood changes colors from brown to green, blue and black as it’s exposed to the sun. Please note this is a dark colored pen and over time, it will continually darken, but retain it’s beautiful character.

Lignum Vitae is regarded by most to be both the heaviest and hardest wood in the world. A related wood species with similar working properties and characteristics—is commonly used as a substitute called Argentine Lignum Vitae. Both woods are extremely hard, heavy, oily, and have a feathered grain pattern with a distinct brownish olive color.

Hardware Finish:
Chrome

The Process:
The hand selected materials for this item were first cut and drilled, then turned on a lathe by me, Jack. Sanding is completed through several grits until the piece is smooth to the touch. Next, up to 10 finish coats of cyanoacrolate (”CA” Superglue) are applied by hand, one at a time. The finish is buffed with a series of micromesh pads, then shined with polishing compound until the surface has a glass-like appearance. A final rub on the buffing wheel adds depth and final clarity.

This method, the most difficult and intensive technique, provides your purchase with the most durable exterior possible, and a beautifully reflective surface that resists the elements and will last for many years.

Includes Pencil Box & 5.6mm "Lead" Refill
