Product Information:

African olivewood (olea capensis) The heartwood is often pale to medium brown with irregular streaks that vary from brown to dark-brown and dark grey. The sapwood is generally pale yellow. Wood has excellent strength properties. Material can be difficult to work due to interlocked grain and oily surface of the wood. Olivewood needs care when drying to avoid checking or honeycombing, especially with thicker material. Glues well, recommended pre-boring needed when nailing. Moderate blunting effect to cutting tools. Polishes up well and gives a smooth even finish.

    Great product and makes great looking pen. Authenticity certificate is added bonus. A heavy card stock for the certificate would enhance the product as well but this does very nicely.
