Lignum Vitae

LIMITED EDITION 

 The wood used in the pen is 250+ year old Lignum Vitae, recovered from the Atlantic Ocean, from the shipwreck of the French ship "L'Union", which sank off the coast of Bermuda in 1763, when it hit a reef in bad weather. Lignum Vitae is Latin for “wood of life”, and derives its name from its medicinal uses. Found in the Caribbean islands and South America, Lignum Vitae is the hardest, heaviest, and most close-grained wood known. Its density almost equals that of iron and in some parts of the world it therefore referred to as ironwood.

Since the wood came out of the Atlantic Ocean, off the coast of Bermuda; the chest box was made out of Bermuda Cedar.
