Australian Blackwood is also called as Tasmanian Blackwood. Australian Blackwood Pen Blanks are best and the wood has an intense three-dimensional nature with a glazing look usually seen in quarter sawn wood. This glazing nature makes the pen blank attractive and unique. It’s a stable wood and very similar to Hawaiian Koa in color, density, and other features.

The wood is hard and heavy. It’s easy to work both in machine and hand tools. The curly grain pattern is decorative and looks great on your pen blanks. The wood turns well according to your desired shape. The wood glues and finishes well. The wood lumber is fairly expensive and figured wood is even more costly. Australian Blackwood pen blanks are suitable for roller balls and large fountain pens.
