This pen features an amazing blank made from dyed and stabilized big leaf maple burl. Burl is typically a growth or tumor on a tree that makes very unique grains or patterns. This one has "birds eyes" in it which makes it even more unusual. The blank is hand turned on a lathe then mounted in a copper Aston Martin pen kit. As will all of our pens, it comes with the ability to take refills so it will last a lifetime!
