Black ash burl is a North American rarity. It primarily grows in the swamps of the Northern United States and must be harvested when the marsh is deeply frozen. It is one of America's most beautiful woods marked with exquisite grain figure and rich color. The fittings have a brilliant rhodium finish with black titanium decorations. The fountain pen features a medium point, German-made stainless steel nib, and will come fitted with a piston converter so you can use your favorite bottled ink.  If you prefer cartridges, your pen will also arrive with an international ink cartridge.  Replacements are easily found at most office supply retailers and stationary shops.  Should you opt for the rollerball, it will be filled with a Schmidt or Shcneider insert which are the most common sizes.  Most office suppliers will carry refills that fit.
