This pen is made form Colophospermum mopane or the common name is Mopani. This wood can be found in northern and southern parts of Africa. The wood is a deep brown with hints of red. The pen itself has a Cyanoacrylate finish (CA) or what is known as super glue, it has a very shiny finish too it. I wet sanded it from 1500 grit to 12000 grit micro mesh sand paper. This is the first pen i tried the CA finish. I recommend this finishing process to any one who likes to turn pens.
