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.  The cap is held firmly in place with a magnet and you will find yourself continually snapping the cap on and off just for fun. The pen will come with a medium point, German made nib, a piston converter, and an international ink cartridge.  Should you opt for the rollerball, it will come with an international sized insert that is easily replace where office supplies are sold.
