Gold Rollerball with knurled detailing on center band and high quality components. This pen will post. Black fine point Schmidt 888 roller ball refill included. Rollerball pens have the feel of a ballpoint pen but releases ink easily onto paper like a fountain pen. The pen's ballpoint rolls smoothly while transferring ink from its reservoir. The rollerball ink is water-based, this makes writing with a rollerball much easier and enjoyable.
Hawaiian Koa(Acacia) Wood of the Ali'i (Royalty). In old Hawai'i it was “kapu” or prohibited for anyone to possess koa wood except for the Hawaiian monarchs and theali’i royalty class. After the death of King Kamehameha, the kapu system was abandoned, thus allowing all Hawaiians to possess koa wood. Koa trees have a natural life cycle of about 50-80 years due to the natural occurrence of rot and decay. Trees are not cut, only fallen trees are used for the instruments, furniture, home accessories and crafts we see today.
Banyan Tree (Ficus) The first tree was brought to Hawai'i in 1873. It was a gift from the missionaries of India. These giant, majestic trees have become symbols of historical importance as well as a place of many family picnics and fun.
Ebony (Ebenaceae) This beautiful exotic hardwood is imported to use in our custom segmenting to contrast and help highlight the beauty of our Island woods.
Island Mango (Mangifera Indica) One of the first mango trees in Hawai'i was brought in around 1824. This island wood is now found in back yards throughout Hawai'i. Tree maintenance provides many cut branches to be laying around. The rotting effect or spaulting creates what Herb calls "Natures Art". This spaulting creates unique variations from one piece to the next.
Please note that every pen is made of all natural woods and our own resin mix. Although similar, no two will be exactly alike. This high end writing instrument includes a black ink refill and an extra refill as a gift to you.
