Recognisable by its colour and its very fine grain, rosewood [cordia fragrantissima] comes from a Brazilian tree. The light-hued yellow and brownish-pink veining gives this wood a particularly striking appearance. Its rather fine grain makes it hard and strong but also difficult to work with. It can split if not carefully handled. Rosewood has long been used in cabinetmaking and was particularly fashionable during the reign of Louis XVI in 18th-century France. It presented a special challenge to Caran d’Ache craftsmen: since it is a living material that alters over time, it has to be carefully stabilized to remain in perfect condition throughout the life of the instrument. Combined with silver-plated rhodium-coating, this rare material gives the Metwood line a highly distinctive natural beauty. Rhodium never oxidizes and will always keep its brilliant silvery sheen.
This Caran d'Ache Varius Metwood Silver Plated Rhodium Coated roller ball pen is presented in a beautiful rosewood gift box.
It includes the 8228.009 refill cartridge,
Caran d'Ache international lifetime guarantee.
The Varius comes in a variety of styles and pen type options. As we are authorised Caran d'Ache dealers, we are able to supply any of these. Please contact us for details.
I know that the only way to decide whether you really like a pen or not is to hold it, which is kindof difficult to do over the internet, so I have a solution. Buy it. If you don't like it, ship it back (your cost and everything must be returned in like new condition), and I will give you a full refund. I don't think that you can get fairer than that.
