Wenge is an absolute nightmare to carve. It’s tough yet brittle, splintery and dusty, and dulls carving chisels at an annoyingly fast rate. Yet, it remains among my favorite woods because the finished product is so remarkable. If you’re looking for a bold, statement-making writing instrument, look no further than Wenge!

Yes Finish: Satin – The low gloss, satin option is perfect for anyone who wants a truly authentic looking and feeling wooden pen.
