Handmade Purpleheart Saturn Ballpoint Pen with Gun Metal Plating
The pen is handmade from Purpleheart, also known as Amaranth. The freshly cut wood is a dull grayish/purplish brown color but with exposure to the air and UV light the color changes to a deeper eggplant purple. Purpleheart grows in Central and South America from Mexico to southern Brazil. The hardware is 24kt gold plated.
The Saturn pen is the "big brother" to the Slimline pen since it has a larger center band than a Slimline pen and is therefore slightly larger and heavier than a Slimline while maintaining the classic style. The Saturn pen includes an atractive ball clip and an atractive oriental style center band. The pen is approximately 5" long and 3/8" diameter (actual dimensions vary due to the handcrafting process) and comes with a Cross black ink cartridge. The pictured pen is representative of the finished product you will receive although there may be slight variations in color tones, grain patterns and contours. The product is shipped USPS priority mail in a gray felt with clear plastic lid gift box usually within 24 hours of order. Other gift boxes are available in the gift box menu. The pen comes with Certificate of Handmade Authenticity and Registration, instructions for care and maintenance, and written warranty. There is no finer gift to others or yourself than a stunningly beautiful, totally unique (the only one in the world), handmade quality utilitarian object that will be treasured and used for a lifetime
