This is a relatively short and slender pen that fits in anywhere, yet is solid and feels great in your hand. It has a unique style that is both retro and timeless. The brilliant chrome trim should last a long time and nicely complements the Bubinga (Guibourtia demeusei) wood. This giant tree is found in equitorial Africa and can grow over 130 feet high with a trunk diameter of 6 feet. The wood is extremely dense making it expensive to ship.This rich reddish wood regularly appeared in French Renaissance furniture of the 1700s. Woodturners especially like its even texture and colorations. It is commonly used by luthiers in guitars as a substitute for rosewood. Other uses of Bubinga is in archery bows and as an interior trim for Lexus luxury cars.

This pen uses a standard Parker-style refill. To extend the refill, simply twist the top finial of the pen in either direction. Included with your pen is a premium easyFlow 9000 ink cartridge, made by Schmidt in Germany. To replace the refill, simply unscrew the short black section above the nib of the pen.
