Tasmanian Eucalyptus comes from the mountainous regions of Southeastern Australia, Tasmania, and Victoria.  It is marked with beautiful curls of iridescent wood grain that move as you rotate the pen in the light.  I used a natural oil finish so you can feel the texture of the wood, and your hands will cause the wood to patina more with use. The fitting are made of bronze, and have a hand rubbed patina.  As you write, it will begin to burnish and "break in" adding to its richness.  It will come fitted with a piston converter so you can use your favorite bottled ink. I will also include an international ink cartridge in case you prefer this filling method.  Additional cartridges may be purchased at most office supply outlets and stationary shops.  Should you choose the rollerball,  the international sized insert included is the most common size on the market and many brands are available at most office supply retailers.
