Kingwood with 24kt Gold Plating
The pen is handmade from Kingwood. Kingwood is a dark purplish or reddish brown with darker black streaks and grows in Brazil. Considered a true Rosewood, Kingwood is among the densest and strongest of all Rosewoods. The wood supposedly got its name from several French kings (Louis XIV and Louis XV) that preferred the wood for fine furniture. The pen hardware is 24kt gold plated.
DetailsThe realistic bolt-action handle smoothly advances and retracts to lock the refill in place. A bolt action rifle clip, a replica 30 caliber cartridge and rose gold bullet tip, and a replica rose gold bullet primer cap on the pen end adds authenticity. The pen is approximately 5 1/4" long and 1/2" wide (sizes vary because of the handcrafting process) and comes with a black Parker ink cartridge. The pictured pen (#547) is the pen you will receive. The pen is shipped in a felt pouch usually within 24 hours of order.
