Slimline Wood Twist Pen - Bubinga and Black Titanium

This is an Artisan Slimline wood pen made from Bubinga and with black titanium components. Black titanium is a dark and shiny metal, probably half way between silver and black, and is as durable as it comes for wood pen components - the parts have a lifetime guarantee.
Bubinga, often referred to as African Rosewood, is a popular choice for musical instruments, fine decroative pieces, archery bows, and furniture - especially large slabs for table tops. Lexus also makes use of the wood in their luxury vehicle interiors. The wood from West Africa, its color varies from red to violet with fairly evenly spaced purple stripes, it's hard and heavy and fine-grained, and what nobody else on line seems to say about it is that it smells sour and poopy when you cut it - I kept wondering "what is that smell?" till I realized it was the wood I was sanding on my lathe. Don't worry though, the pen smells just fine, and looks awesome.
Price for this pen: $35.00
