Zebrawood is the quintessential exotic wood coming from Africa. Few woods exemplify this type of earthy strength and beauty. It is a warm leathery light brown with eratic streaks of dark brown grain. I have coupled this wood with bronze fittings which have a hand-rubbed patina. The wood is polished with natural oils and left uncoated so you can feel the warmth of the wood. Take extra precautions with this pen as the wood is still absorbant. It will continue to patina with use and become more beautiful with time, but it will also absorb ink so take all care in filling and cleaning this pen. The nib is a German made, medium point. Your pen will arrive in a glass top case, will include an international sized ink cartridge, and a piston converter for using bottled ink.
