How the Tigerwood Pen was created!
It all began when my brother, an avid golfer, asked me if I had heard of a wood called Tigerwood. I had not, but the idea was intriguing. I researched and discovered there was indeed such a species:
Latin Name: Astronium Fraxinifolium
Other Names: Bois de Zebre, Kingwood, Zorrowood
Location: Brazil, Paraguay, and Guiana
Colours: light golden brown to reddish brown with dark stripes.
It seemed fitting to include an accent of Ironwood to continue with the golfing theme.
Latin Name: Ostraya Virginiana American Hophornbeam
Location: Canada & the U.S.
Although this pen cannot guarantee a low handicap like its namesake, it will no doubt rival the pencil in his golf bag.
