I really like the flow of this pen, it seems to have a presence of fluidity about it. The bright silver metalwork works really well with the purpleheart wood. The wood has been given two coats of wax to end able the owner to feel the wood and over time, the wood will absorb natural body oils and purple colour the pen will deepen.
Wikipedia says "Peltogyne, commonly known as purpleheart, amendoim, violet wood, amaranth and other local names (often referencing the colour of the wood) is a genus of 23 species of flowering plants in the family Fabaceae; native to tropical rainforests of Central and South America; from Guerrero, Mexico, through Central America, and as far as south-eastern Brazil. They are medium-sized to large trees growing to 30–50 m (100–160 ft) tall, with trunk diameters of up to 1.5 m (5 ft). The leaves are alternate, divided into a symmetrical pair of large leaflets 5–10 cm (2–4 in) long and 2–4 cm (1–2 in) broad. The flowers are small, with five white petals, produced in panicles. The fruit is a pod containing a single seed. The timber is desirable but difficult to work"
The pen comes with a tied velvet pouch.
