Bocote pen

Bocote, like its close relative Ziricote, is a very beautiful wood with a unique appearance. The heartwood is an attractive yellowish-brown overlain with distinctive black lines giving the wood an active and striking figure. Subtle birdseye figures can appear and when quarter cut, bright ray flakes shimmer on the surface.

Up to six species are harvested and sold as Bocote, with Cordia elaeagnoides the most commonly seen by woodworkers. Botanical considerations aside, appearance and workability are the properties desired by craftspeople. Harvesting occurs mostly in Mexico and other countries of Central America. Some of the logging is done selectively with mules, which helps maintain a sustainable resource by avoiding clear-cutting.

This pen is beautiful ! This bog oak is a deep , nearly black color just like I had wanted. I chose the bock nib addition and I am thrilled. I prefer a 1.1 and Steven customized this pen with it for me. Came with nicely made Wooden pen box, a tin for inks, a convertor, a standard nib, and a lovely hand written note.
It is always a pleasure opening up the items I have ordered from Bog and Brass when they arrive in the post. I will definitely be buying from this shop again in the future.
