The Pen:
Refined, elegant and cool this retro inspired Oxford Pen is an instant classic. The unique design features a fixed cap with black enamel over brass. Twist to extend ink. Uses common cross refills.

The Material (Wood):
Desert Ironwood is perhaps one of the most highly-regarding of all woods in knife-making, with its density, stability, and grain patterns and colors creating a unique combination of characteristics that’s ideal for decorative handles. It’s also favored for carving by the indigenous Seri people now living in the state of Sonora in Mexico.

The Material (Resin):
These otherwise too small to use, these cut off pieces are valuable hardwood burls are placed into a colorful mix of swirling Alumilite resins. Inlace Acrylester (resin) is a semi-translucent plastic that exhibits a remarkable iridescent shimmer. It is available in a huge variety of colors, each with a unique pearlescent pattern and amazing visual depth.

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 sanding until perfectly smooth. A final several 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 Pen Box & Two Refills

Note: There is a small lip on the barrel connecting to the tip, which you can feel slightly when you hold the pen. It's not a big deal, but worth disclosing and why the pen is about $15 less than it would be otherwise! I strive for perfection :)
