Herringbone 360 Ballpoint Pen, Knights Armor with Celtic Rings, #0605


Segmented wood pen with a Herringbone 360 twist design that has 74 pieces of wood glued together to make the pen blank. The herringbone 360 design is such that when you turn the pen the design wraps around the pen in a 360 degree pattern. Woods used are Ebony, Maple, and Redheart with the Celtic Knot being of four woods with Redheart, Ebony, dyed blueish green Maple, and Holly. Note, on photos 2 & 5 the white mark on the bottom of the green ring is a natural lighter marking in the wood and not a crack.
Antiqued Pewter hardware was used for all the pen parts. The cap of the pen replicates a knights helmet made of many pieces of metal riveted together. A pocket clip with a medieval sword and a fluted lower point highlight this pen.

This is not a decal or pen inlay kit, much different in that the colors on this pen go all the way through from one side to the other. If this pen was cut in half you would see the different colored rings in the very center, it is a solid wood pen made up of many segmented parts put together.

This could be a very special pen for someone's desk.

The pen has a CA finish that is polished to 12,000 grit level for a very high shine.
This pen comes equipped with a German made Schmidt 9000 easy flow writer with black ink and medium point. This is probably in my opinion one of the best writing refills available and still staying in the ballpoint glass without jumping up to the roller balls. A regular Parker refill also fits this pen. Your choice of writing tips is available from the menu. If you want the ultimate writing ease and ink transfer pick the Schmidt, the black and blue are 9000 Easy flow refills that write more like a roller ball but are still in the ballpoint family. The Parker black is the standard refill that is also a very good normal writing tip. Use the menu for your preference.

Pen is 5" long and is 1/2" in diameter.
Weight is about 2oz.
