The Statesman Rollerball pen has a rich Black Titanium hand-cast engraved inset on the cap and barrel end surrounded by brilliant Rhodium plating. In the tradition of fine desk pens, the Statesman Pen is not designed for use with the cap attached to the pen. It has a ceramic tipped Schmidt cartridge for smooth, effortless writing. The body has been turned from Stabilized Spalted Hackberry Dyed Violet from the USA. The grain is accented by the dye as it is being stabilized as well as how it is turned. Each pen is an original or one of a kind making it great for the discerning person. It has an extremely durable hand applied multi-layer finish. It is approx. 5/8" dia x 5.75"L. A card with information regarding the care of wood pens and the name of the wood and it's origin is included with the purchase.
