Native to Malaysia, Amboyna is among the most splendid and sought-after woods in the world. Throughout the 20th century, spectacular Amboyna burls have been the wood of choice for high-end veneers and luxury woodcarvings. Now, under pressure from over-harvesting, Amboyna is restricted in many countries, and this pen was crafted from a set of six salvaged Amboyna pieces over a decade old.

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 due to the incredible natural figure of the wood
