Regarded by some as the Holy Grail of turning woods, Bocote presents a darkness and depth of color that is unparalleled amongst the contrast woods. Like many rosewoods, this will gradually become darker of time. This is one of the most frequently requested woods for non-engraved orders, however the unique grain can present challenges for clear engravings.
Model: Premium Writer's Pen
Pen Type: Ballpoint (Gel upon request)
Ink Color: Black (Blue upon request)
Wood: Bocote Rosewood
Finish: Satin – The low gloss, satin option is perfect for anyone who wants a truly authentic looking and feeling wooden pen. With the “smooth” option, any imperfections in the wood (peaks, valleys, sharp grain lines) will be cut down (through sanding from 150grit up to 12,000grit) and/or filled up (using glues and wood fillers). This process results in a very smooth and comfortable grip, while still preserving the integrity and aesthetic of minimally treated wood. Finished using Mylands Friction Polish, rated to withstand three to five years of normal use before refinishing.
I’m proud to offer custom laser engraving as an option for every pen in the shop. Engraving costs an addition $5 per item, and may delay shipping by a single day.
Laser engraving involves burning an image or text into the wood body of the pen. This process produces a black engraving. Naturally, a black engraving appears differently on light versus dark colored woods. As a general rule, lighter woods produce more brilliant and contrasting engravings than darker ones. Red, orange, yellow, white and light brown woods all engrave very clearly. Purple, dark brown, and black woods tend not to produce clear engravings, therefore I usually discourage the purchase of engraving for such woods.
