Gaboon Ebony Fountain Pen
While it's known mainly as African Ebony, most people have seen this wood before because it's primarily used as the black piano keys. Gaboon has been coveted throughout history, including within Egyptian tombs. While the grain is slightly more noticeable than African Blackwood, Gaboon makes an equally handsome pen. The pen pictured above features Gunmetal hardware and #5 steel nib.
