Amboyna Burl Wood
William Henry BOLT RINCON
A sleek and elegant pen that writes beautifully, carries comfortably, and catches the eye. The Rincon 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 amboyna wood burl, 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.
This piece features one of our hallmark materials.
These natural materials owe their patterns and distinctive color palette to the specific and often unique conditions in which they came to exist.
Because of the fossilization process, soil composition and meteorology, these rare fossils, exotic woods, shells and rocks can show dramatic differences in color and pattern, making every piece a one-of-a-kind.

Also known as ‘New Guinea Rosewood’, Amboyna hardwood, is a purplish and rose-scented wood which is found in Southeast Asia and Western Pacific Ocean. The wood known in Indonesia as amboyna is the burl of the tree, named after Ambon, where much of this material was originally found. sliced amboyna produces an extremely decorative veneer. William Henry uses this wood to produce beautiful inlays for our knives. Interesting fact: the wood is also used to make the keys on a marimba.
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.
