Sometimes called Mexican Royal Ebony on account of its strength and stiffness, Katalox sands to a perfectly smooth finish, making it among the most satisfying pen woods available. The dark brown of the wood is interspersed with red and purple hues, and sapwood pieces often feature starkly contrasting white tones. One of the most popular woods for old-fashioned wood turning, this iconic wood is an ideal combination of vintage style and unbeatable feel.
Model: Slim Twist Pen
Pen Type: Ballpoint
Ink Color: Black
Fixtures: 24kt Gold
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.
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.
