Black & White Ebony Slimline Ballpoint Pens

These pens are 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.

Mechanism:
The mechanisms are all 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

    I just purchased a black and white ebony pen for a graduation gift. The pictures do not do them justice! They are amazing. The craftsmanship is outstanding. This is an artist who's love for what he does comes out in his work.
