Päua Abalone is a shell from mollusks only found in New Zealand. To create this majestic fountain pen, this sheets of Abalone were sliced into straight segments and glued around a cylindrical brass tube to hold the circular shape. By painstakingly matching each Abalone segment to its place from the original shell, the unmistakable Päua pattern flows effortlessly across this flawless fountain pen. The photos don't due this writing instrument justice, as it radiates in the natural sunlight!

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.
