  • Aeolus ballpoint pen, African blackwood, rhodium plated


    An exquisite twist action ballpoint pen that oozes quality. Hand turned from African blackwood and adorned with high quality rhodium and black Ti plated components. Rhodium is an exquisite and valuable precious metal. Its brilliance, hardness, and beauty make it a favourite of fine pen collectors.

    Aeolus is a Greek word meaning quick moving or nimble.
