African Blackwood Ballpoint Pen

African Blackwood Ballpoint Pen

While technically part of the Rosewood family, African Blackwood is considered to be the original Ebony. Jet black with almost no discerinible grain, this wood makes a striking pen that is both formal and exotic. The pen pictured above features Chrome hardware and a Modified grip.

About grip styles

Brock's Shoppe pens are made to the highest standards of quality and thoughtfulness. While most people find pens comfortable with our Standard taper grip, we also offer a Modified grip that features a pronounced lip close to the tip followed by a groove for holding, or resting your fingers in.



All pens are made to order and have a lead time of one to two weeks, plus shipping. Depending on their use, most wood species will change color over time as the wood naturally ages.
