This is a Broadwell Noveau Sceptre Rhodium 22kt rollerball pen I turned for a co-worker. The pen kit itself is very elegant. The co-worker picked the wood used for the body which is Macassar Ebony. This is the first time I’ve dealt with this type of wood. Per the wood-database, this is a very dense heartwood that tends to blunt tools easily. I can attest to the density while sanding… Damn stuff is tough. The wood looks very dark, but actually has streaks of light brown in it when the light hits it just right.
