Hey. Remember in school when teachers would mark stuff wrong? You could always tell the ones that used red ink either
1 - enjoyed it a little too much, or
2 - had pride in their work.
eh. It's a fine line. Regardless, If you're one of those teachers or simply have a use for a single pen that can use more than one color ink, you're in luck!
This pen is dual-sided, using black and red ink concurrently. There are three types of wood involved, which invoke conversations about symbolism, history and geography! How useful!
Centering the pen is Acacia apple wood. It's purty and apples have something to do with teachers, I guess. On one end of it is Padauk, which is originally from Africa. So. geography. On the other side, is black Bog Oak. This oak fell down in the Fens in England thousands of years ago and soaked in the bog, which is what gave it it's black coloring. This piece of wood was soaking in nature's spa when your ancestors were fighting with sticks. Mine were probably also using sticks. They were kind of a big deal back then.
