For those that prefer a slimmer style pen, this beautiful instrument is crafted from Cocobolo (Dalbergia retusa), an exotic wood native to Central America. Woodworkers and turners have long valued this dense wood for fine furniture and cabinetry. Musical instruments and custom pool cues are often created from this wood. The wood is very durable and has a dark brown, reddish color. This is said to be the most popular wood for pens. After shaping the body on the lathe, this wood is sanded smooth, then coated with over 12 coats of cyanoacrylate before being buffed to a high shine. To complement the rich wood, premium titanium gold plated trim was selected. This pen features a beaded center band and a small knob on the clip.

To extend the point of this pen, the upper body is twisted relative to the lower body by a half-turn. The standard Cross-style refill is accessed by pulling off the top half of the pen above the centerband. The refill then unscrews.
