The Buckeye Burl Rollerball Pen is plated with gun metal, a type of bronze that yields a beautiful black oxide look, and features a magnetic cap that posts instantly and easily on the nib and pen end. The hex shaped rollerball pen is inspired by a hexagonal nuts and bolts design that provides a rugged tool like look. The pen body is made of stabilized buckeye burl dyed with blue pigment.
This pen requires little maintenance, when the refill runs out it can be replaced with a Schmidt EasyFlow 9000 of any ink density (Fine/Medium/Bold Thickness). When replacing the refill unscrew the tip while keeping track of the spring and remove the spent refill and then place the new refill in. Then replace the spring and screw the tip back on.
