Bocote has yellow and black stripes. That what the pen looks like and Cocobolo is a lot darker.
Great looking pen.

Nice. Can the bolt be mounted on the other side with that kit?

I don’t believe so because they have a screw cap for the stylus and a regular cap.

Yes, that’s definitely Cocobolo. A very nice looking writing tool.
