This Black palm wood ballpoint pen is something you wont see in your normal day to day life. This is sure to attract many interested admirers wondering just what it is.
The twist mechanism and the tip both have a detailed textured grip.
Black Palm and Red Palm are interesting woods which come from the outer hardened area of a type of palm tree. While the wood is called black or red, it actually has black or red flecks on a light or deep tan background as above. Sometimes the flecks are very close together and the piece looks almost black or reddish. It is also possible for the flecks to be further apart. Because this wood only comes from the outer hardened areas, sizes can never be very large. The end grain of the wood is also interesting and looks like hammered leather when used as an inlay.
You will love the feel of this pen in your hand and will be the envy of many an admirer. Life is too short to use an ugly pen. You will own a piece of Irish history in your hands with this fine writing instrument.
The grain of the aged wood really stands out and makes it a real statement piece. This is built to give years of joy.
About the pen
Material: Black palm wood. Antique silver fittings.
Colour: Black, silver.
Ink: The pen comes with a parker style refill which can be bought at any good stationary store.
Blanks are selected from seasoned wood for their grain and colour. The wood is turned to size, sanded through 5 different grits of sandpaper. I then coat with sanding sealer to seal the wood's grain before sanding this surface smooth again. Next, i rub the wood with Danish oil to bring out the wonderful colour before finishing off with a rubbing of wax for a great finish and protection.
