This sleek Summit style pen offers a classic look and twisting function. The center ring sits on a tenon giving the top and bottom two different widths and a pretty style. Take the “Cross” type refill. This pen has purple / dark purple throughout. It is a VERY dark pen though, but radiates nice purples from the edges.
Sometimes called Amaranth, this colorful Latin American hardwood is tremendously popular for furniture and other designs that call for a unique splash of color. In addition to its coloration, Purpleheart has excellent strength properties, and can be used in applications where strength is important—a wood for both form and function. Freshly cut heartwood is a dull grayish/purplish brown. Upon exposure the wood becomes a deeper eggplant purple. With further age and exposure to UV light, the wood becomes a dark brown with a hint of purple with a mature, beautifully aged look.
The hand selected pieces for this pen were turned by Jack D. Ciallella on a lathe. They were sanded through several grits of sandpaper until perfectly smooth. A 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 Extra Refill & Pen Sleeve
Sale Note: The pen finish on the wood was sanded through near the center band. Because it's so close to the ring, it is hard to notice, but it lacks a perfect look. Visible in the last photo. My mistake is your chance at a gorgeous pen for less!
