Here is a very handsome junior size Emperor pen made from a truly unique wood. The Chittum Burl is extremely rare with loads of small eyes and figure throughout the wood. What better pen for it to go with than the Jr. Emperor! Enjoy the style and good looks of the very popular Emperor pen in a smaller, lighter version that can be comfortably carried in your pocket or purse. The Jr. Emperor rollerball includes a ceramic tipped Schmidt cartridge for smooth, effortless writing. The "fast action" thread found on the Jr. Emperor pen guarantees silky smooth operation and requires only 1 1/2 turns to attach or remove the pen cap. The pen features four unique hand carved patterns found on the ends, clip and accent rings. Hand cast, polished then plated with precious 22 K Gold, these stunning decorative inlays are encompassed throughout by Rhodium plated fittings. The pen exudes quality and elegance unmatched by any other pen. Attention is paid to the very smallest detail during the production of this magnificent pen with each component hand checked for proper fit and finish before assembly. Assembled components are then hand polished and checked once again to ensure a flawless fit.. The pen has 22 k Gold hand cast engraved inserts on the cap, barrel ends. This is surrounded by Rhodium plating. This ensures an extremely durable finish that will last for many years to come.

The blank is hand turned to the rounded shape you see here. Extreme care was taken to ensure that the blank was the exact size of the pen kit so the transition between the Chittum burl and the rhodium of the pen kit. Afterwards, the wood blank is sanded with a 14 step process. Then a multistage (20 +) step finish is applied and finally, two coats of polish are applied. The pen is polished to a mirror like finish...it will last you a very long time.

The pen is perfectly balanced to make writing / signing enjoyable! The Rollerball assembly includes a premium Schmidt® steel cartridge rollerball refill. The refills can be purchased from any office store.

About the wood - Chittum (American Smoke Tree) Burl - Cotinus Obovatus

This is a rich amber burl, turning slightly darker in color with age. Fine grained with curl and eye figure. This root burl from the American Smoketree, part of the cashew family, and was once used for making a yellow dye. While the Smoke Tree is fairly common, the burls are very rare. The figured wood is all from the root, hence the term burl. This wood is truly one of the rarest in the world and is unknown outside of the US. It grows in limestone formations and must be chiseled or blasted out of the rock that surrounds it.

More pictures available if you are interested. Just email or message me through ETSY.

This would make the perfect Groomsmen gift or one for the groom himself! Also would be very appropriate for any graduate or business person.

The finished pen is 19/32" x 5 1/4" so this is quite the pen!

A velvet bag / pouch is included that will make a perfect way to present as a gift or to protect the pen.
