This Pinnacle twist pen is made with figured Honduran Rosewood (Dalbergia stevensonii) (also known as Nogaed). This is a true Rosewood that grows in the Toledo District of southern Belize, primarily along rivers. The tree grows up to 100 feet high and 3 feet in diameter. It was named in 1927 after Neil S. Stevenson, a former Conservator of Forests for the then British Honduras. . The wood is prized for its tonal properties and is used in many musical instruments, particularly marimba and xylophone striking bars. It is also valued for its beauty and used in furniture. The wood body of this pen is finished with over 12 coats of cyanoacrylate, giving it a lustrous shine.
Titanium gold trim adds a bright highlight and the finial and section portions of the pen are finished in black titanium, one of the hardest of platings. The Parker-style refill is extended by twisting the finial at the top of the pen above the clip. The lower section of the pen below the lower twin beads unscrews to change the refill. Included with the pen is a premium EasyFLOW 9000 ink cartridge, manufactured by the Schmidt company in Germany. I have found this to be the finest Parker-style ink refill available.
