The timber used in this pen and pencil is the sapwood of European Rosewood. The wood shows spalting lines which is the result of a fungus in the wood. They show up as black lines in the timber and can produce some interesting patterns. The pen and mechanical pencil are twist operated, with the pen using ‘Parker’ style refill and the pencil using 0.7mm leads. Shaped to be comfortable to use the set has a hard durable finish that has been polished to a high shine. The set comes in a black presentation box.
