Collector Wide Rollerball Pen, Bocote Rosewood with Gold (156)
This wooden rollerball pen is the biggest, heaviest, wide-grip pen on the market. At 3/4'' diameter across the cap, nearly 6'' long, and 3.3oz, this is a serious desk pen for a serious collector. Don't try to treat this as a pocket pen, because it weighs nearly as much as 15 regular plastic ballpoint pens! For anyone looking for a hefty and handsome desk piece, look no further than this listing!
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.
The hardware on this pen is made from rhodium, not cheap chrome or silver coating. The decorative bands are carved from 24kt gold, and the crystal inset into the clip is a genuine Swarovski. The pen includes a pre-installed, premium Schmidt safety ceramic roller cartridge, and this item ships in a custom paper gift box.
Model: Collector Series
Pen Type: Rollerball
Ink Color: Black ink cartridge included, along with refillable reservoir
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.
