"Spalting" - the dark and erratic black lines in this pen - is caused by the presence of fungi in trees. The boundary areas between fungi develop these dark lines, which make for truly unique pens. No two spalted pens will look alike, as all will have distinctive spalting patterns.

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.
