What the hemp?
Hemp! That's what! We've been working with hemp for a while, but this material took a bit of trial and error for this pen turner and the results are worth it. We love the incredible texture of the wood, the drama of the texture, and the knowledge that all of this is the result of sustainable, eco-friendly farming and harvesting.
With his generous profile and wide barrel, not only is "Nelson" a comfortable fit for the serious writer, his plump shape shows off even more of his beautiful complexion. A ballpoint twist, you'll never have to worry about losing his cap. "Nelson" may be a beauty, but he's a no-frills artist. Accented with 24k gold, he is as warm as he is comfortable.
