This teak wood was recovered from the USS Missouri decking. The teak was placed on the battleship deck between 1945 and 1950. After it was retired here in 1998, I received this batch of wood in 2003 soon after renovations began. The teak lumber was sourced from the Japanese lumber yards right after WWII to make repairs to the ship. This ballpoint is for those who like a heavy, fatter pen. The metal hardware is plated with titanium oxide. As with all pens made by Lau Lau Woodworks, it is water and chemical resistant because of the special finish applied to each pen. This takes a Parker style refill. *Each of our pens are branded individually by hand with our company logo, the laulau. You will find the logo next to the pen clip. This is to certify that you have a Lau Lau Woodworks pen. **You may be contacted shortly after your order for the cost of shipping based on weight and destination.
