Ziricote is a beautiful Central American wood coming primarily from Belize. It has rich black grain with brown figure. I selected to use a traditional oil finish for this pen so that it will patina with use. As the oils from your hands absorb, the wood will get richer in time. Think of the naturally finished wood like a leather bag.  It will break in, and the marks tell the story of its life.  So the hand polishing that happens, or the drops of ink you may spill over time, are the spices of life which make this pen truly special.  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.
