    A mechanical pencil of the highest quality and smooth twist action. Handcrafted from an exquisite piece of Chile laurel wood, and features premium quality rhodium plated components, with the very best of German made mechanism. Rhodium is an exquisite and valuable precious metal. Its brilliance, hardness, and beauty make it a favourite of fine pen collectors. Rhodium is extremely durable; it doesn't tarnish easily and is very resistant to scratching and acids.

    Chile laurel is also known as Peruvian nutmeg. Its seeds are often ground and used as spice and is also used in boatbuilding and furniture making. Its bark contains an alkaloid (pukateine), which is often used in herbal medicine for its pain killing properties (similar to morphine).
