The pen in the photos is the pen you will receive
This limited edition fountain pen is predominately carved from king cocobolo wood, spiraled and highlighted by pieces of curly maple. On either end of the wooden spirals are pieces of dark cocobolo, accented by green caps of box elder burl. The box elder was stabilized with cactus juice and dyed green using mica powder. Only one of these pens was crafted.
More about cocobolo:
Cocobolo Rosewood is in a league of its own. It smells of cinnamon when carved and changes colors as it ages, with each passing day adding depth and complexity of appearance. Mature Cocobolo radiates with oily orange and deep red, streaked by either black or white grain and sap. This is the one pen that will evolve with you, transforming from simply stunning to utterly breathtaking.

Finish: Gloss – The crystal-clear gloss finish holds several distinct advantages over the satin finish. It is much more durable, and will never need refinishing. It provides a clearer, better lens for light-colored woods and layered woods of contrasting colors. For intricate designs with inlay or small pieces, the gloss coating acts as a barrier to prevent small parts from separating. The “smooth” option guarantees an ultra smooth finish, achieved by a two-stage finishing process with cyanoacrylate, sanded to 12,000 grit, then waxed and polished.
I do not recommend engraving this pen.
