This Gaboon Ebony ballpoint pen is handcrafted from one of the most prized pieces of timber on our planet. Accordingly, many Ebony pieces have prominent streaks of brown which distract from the best quality Ebony which has a near total lack of color. simply black. This is one of those nearly ‘hue-less’ pieces you’ll ever come across.

More information: Gaboon Ebony is an exotic wood native to Western Africa. It is an extremely hard, dense, and heavy wood, with a very fine texture. The sapwood is pink to pale red-brown in color, while the heartwood is a uniform jet-black or black-brown streaked. Gaboon Ebony is perhaps the most sought-after exotic wood in the world, as it is the traditional fingerboard “wood of choice” for orchestral stringed instruments (violins, violas, cellos, etc.) along with high-end piano keys and chess sets. Ebony is rare, and in high demand. Accordingly, legislation prohibits shipment outside the continental United States due to CITES II legislation.
