Cabernet 6

Edition of 100 pieces
RB8 6

Cabernet 6

RB8 6

The Cabernet 6 is a superlative rollerball pen featuring an intricate barrel in box elder burl wood, and a light structure in aerospace grade titanium and aluminum. The accents on the ebonite cap are in Mokume Gane (the ancient forging technique used to decorate the hilts of Samurai swords), and the pocket clip is set with citrine. This beautiful writing instrument also features William Henry's patent-pending Wavelock™ cap closure system – a ring of chromium steel balls embedded in a titanium ring which are captured in wave-shaped grooves in titanium collars for closed and post positions.
The Cabernet 6 is a limited worldwide edition of 100 pieces, and the exotic wood barrel confers to each of them a distinct and original personality. Much like their owners, no two pens are ever alike.

Materials

Mokume gane material image

Mokume gane

Mokume gane was developed in the 1600s in Japan, allegedly by an Akita prefecture metalsmith named Denbei Shoami (1651 to 1728). He used the mokume gane technique to dress up samurai swords.
The mokume gane technique involves fusing several layers of different metals, and artistically exposing sections of lower layers. The metal is often made to display a pattern that mimics wood grain. A variety of metals can be used to give different arrays of coloration.
Layers of metal are pressed together and fused with heat. The forged layers are carved to expose lower layers and are then pressed again. The carving and pressing is repeated to develop the pattern. 

Today, some of the finest mokume in the world is made here in the USA, and William Henry is proud to offer a range of this material on our collections. Our mokume is generally made with copper, brass, and nickel silver in either a 45 or 89 layer billet, forged and patterned by hand.

Titanium material image

Titanium

Titanium is a low density, strong, lustrous, corrosion-resistant (including sea water, aqua regia and chlorine) metal with a silver color.
It was discovered in Great Britain by William Gregor in 1791, and named by Martin Heinrich Klaproth for the Titans of Greek mythology

William Henry uses only aerospace-grade titanium alloy for our frames, clips, and micro-fasteners. Called 6Al/4V, it is titanium with a little aluminum and vanadium added in for additional toughness and tensile strength.

Box Elder Burl material image

Box Elder Burl

Box Elder is a species of maple native to North America. The name "Box Elder" is based upon the similarity of its whitish wood to that of boxwood. This tree can grow up to 80 feet, and its burl can develop an intricate maze of fibers that, once sanded and polished, explodes in a mesmerizing, stormy tangle of colors and patterns. This is one of William Henry's most distinctive woods; even the smallest section can contain its own individual and unique passion and personality. All of our woods are sourced responsibly.

Citrine material image

Citrine

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.
