    Ambonya is one of the other prettiest woods on the planet.

    Love the wood. Love the pen. Thought the idea of the groove for the clip bulb was a great idea. I'm curious after reading the above question.

    Enjoy,

    No deep mystery the shape allows the strong clips to rest unstressed I have always opened a clip by hand when putting in my top pocket of the shirt. Some pens never see a pocket at all get scrinched moving the ball part of the clip against the pen top whilst winding in and out the biro marking the timber a fact I do not like at all.

    My design feature far as I know have not seen this done by others I like the design it enables from boring end to end. I choose which pens to do this with.

    Kind regards Peter.
