Black & White Ebony Slimline Ballpoint Pen

This pen is made from Black & White Ebony (Diospyros embryopteris) which is also known as Pale Moon Ebony or White Ebony. There are so many species of Ebony in the world that it’s sometimes difficult to classify what you’re working with, but I’m pretty sure this is correct.I bought the wood from a woodcraft store that offers off-cuts from custom shops. 

The two blanks for this pen were cut from the same piece of wood but the black lace only showed up in the upper piece. Striking, huh?

Mechanism: The mechanism is Cross style and refills are readily available in most office supply stores.

Finish:The pen was sanded up to 400 grit, then burnished with 0000 steel wool to bring up a smooth surface. It was then finished with mineral oil, bee’s & carnauba wax and a final polish with paraffin wax. 

Price: US$35
Item Ref No: BWESP0015
Status: Gifted but a similar pen may be available. Click here to inquire.
