A sleek and elegant pen that writes beautifully, carries comfortably, and catches the eye. The Maui features our bolt action mechanism, inspired by bolt action rifles, which locks open and spring releases closed – and yes, it’s a lot of fun to play with. Barrel is crafted from premium curly Koa wood from Hawaii, and trim accents are all in stainless steel. Both the thumbstud (on the bolt action system) and the top of the pen are inlaid with genuine citrine gemstones. Modern mechanics, clean lines and timeless craftsmanship.
Koa is a fabled tree, and wood, sourced responsibly from the Hawaiian islands. It is reddish brown in color, takes a beautiful polish, and can occasionally offer very fine figuring/curl and chattoyance. William Henry uses only the highest grade of figured Koa (as available) for our work, resin-stabilized for durability.
Citrine is a variety of quartz whose color ranges from a pale yellow to brown due to ferric impurities. The name is derived from Latin citrina which means "yellow" and is also the origin of the word "citron." Sometimes citrine and amethyst can be found together in the same crystal, which is then referred to as ametrine.
