Select Extra Cross™ Style Ball Point Refills

This pen is turned wider than the standard Slimline Pen. The upper barrel is longer and it does not have a separate center band which gives this pen a unique look and feel. You will love the way this pen feels in your hand as you are writing.  The Cross style refill in this pen is Private Reserve" with black ink.

The wood is turned on a lathe, sanded and finished with four coats of polish, all by hand. This creates a beautiful shine that brings out the natural beauty of the wood.  It is a water proof, high gloss finish that is non-toxic and non-flammable after drying. Over time, the oils from your hand will enhance the finish and the wood may darken.

No duplicating equipment is used in my work, therefore, even with like woods, no two Pens will be identical. This Pen is truly one of a kind.

The Cross® Style Refill in the Pen is by Private Reserve Ink®.

  • This refill transforms your pen into the smoothest vehicle for transferring your thoughts onto paper. 
  • The low viscosity ink and refill design make writing a pleasure. 
  • This refill has black ink, message me if you prefer blue.

Cocobolo Rosewood:

Cocobolo is a tropical hardwood of the tree Dalbergia retusa from Central America. Only the heartwood is used: this is typically orange or reddish-brown in color, often with a figuring of darker irregular traces weaving through the wood. The sapwood (not often used) is a creamy yellow, with a sharp boundary with the heartwood. The heartwood is known to change color after being cut, lending to its appeal.

Cocobolo is oily in look and feel. This oil lends a strong, unmistakable floral odor even to well seasoned wood and occasionally stains the hands with prolonged exposure. Standing up well to repeated handling and exposure to water, a common use is in gun grips and knife handles. It is very hard, fine textured and dense, but is easily machined, although due to the abundance of natural oils, the wood tends to clog abrasives and fine-toothed saw blades, like other very hard, very dense tropical woods. Due to its density and hardness, even a large block of the cut wood will produce a clear musical tone if struck. Cocobolo can be polished to a lustrous, glassy finish.
