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. This is one of the most frequently requested woods for non-engraved orders, however the unique grain can present challenges for clear engravings.

Model: Slim Twist Pen

Pen Type: Ballpoint

Ink Color: Black

Wood: Bocote

Fixtures: 24kt Gold Plated

Refillable? Yes

Finish: Satin – The low gloss, satin option is perfect for anyone who wants a truly authentic looking and feeling wooden pen. Any natural imperfections in the wood are removed through sanding and filling, resulting in a smooth and comfortable grip, while preserving the integrity and aesthetic of minimally treated wood. These pens are sealed using a durable friction polish, rated to withstand three to five years of normal use before refinishing.

Engraving Options

I’m proud to offer custom laser engraving as an option for every pen in the shop. Engraving costs an addition $5 per item, and may delay shipping by a single day.

Laser engraving involves burning an image or text into the wood body of the pen. This process produces a black engraving. Naturally, a black engraving appears differently on light versus dark colored woods. As a general rule, lighter woods produce more brilliant and contrasting engravings than darker ones. Red, orange, yellow, white and light brown woods all engrave very clearly. Purple, dark brown, and black woods tend not to produce clear engravings, therefore I usually discourage the purchase of engraving for such woods.
