Pencil-Pal Purpleheart wood is a variation of our Pencil-Pal.
Purpleheart belongs to the category of exotic woods and comes from the rainforests of Brazil, Guyana, and Suriname. Purpleheart is an extremely dense and water-resistant wood. It is ranked one of the hardest and stiffest of the woods in the world
We have made the middle part of it as a combination of two pieces, brass and gorgeous piece Purpleheart. It is very unique product since exotic woods tend to be challenging to work with.
All brass parts are manually machined from solid brass with very high precision. The piece of wood was also hand made and each piece is a unique piece.
You will hardly be able to tell how the two pieces of brass and wood mate together when you invert the cap and use it. The tolerance is less then .003".
It will make a great, unique and useful gift.
Brass simply feels good and balances well in your hand. It is designed to be used on the go. There is no need for an eraser when you need to jot something down quickly. It perfectly fits into a back pocket or a valet.
* Note: the Pencil-Pal Parking Spot is not included in the price. * Note: we have limited supply and will be available while supplies last

This is a dual review of the Pencil-Pal in Purple heart wood and spalted maple wood. I purchased the salted maple directly from the website. Both Pencil-Pals are shown with a modified Blackwing pencil. The Purple Heart is a gorgeous wood. The color is deep and rich. The spalted maple wood has beautiful character variations. Elegant Utility has an interesting read in the product description regarding the procurement of the spalted maple. I was especially excited to receive the spalted maple and see the variation of markings. Both Pencil-Pals provide a balanced feel to the pencil body. The wood Pencil-Pals have unique variations that are expected in a hand crafted product. The Purple Heart wood I received is narrower compared to the spalted maple. I did not notice any fatigue or issues transitioning between the woods.
