Jose straight (#TCAlove)

$175.00 USD

This is part of my random giveaways and special treats for the month of April that I call #TCAlove and #TCAsurprise.  Only a few pieces until April 23, 2017.

Jose is made from Philippine Buffalo Horn and Robles (Philippine Oak) wood fitted with nickel insert.

  • Nickel insert that can fit any nib size
  • Approximately 6.75 nches long and weighs 18 grams 
  • 2.5/8 inch (8mm) neck grip
  • Widest part of the body is 4/8 inches 
  • The material comes from domestic Philippine buffalo horn that are highly valued and are not dispatched only for their bones or horns.  Each horn is one-of-a-kind, with color and shape as unique as a fingerprint!   The variations in their shapes and colors can only be made by nature; thus a horn may have natural blemishes and skewing which will not affect its functionality but does verify its authenticity.

    I named this holder in honor of Lt. Col. Jose Torres Bugallon, town hero of Bugallon, Pangasinan who fought during the Philippine-American War in 1899.  Every year the town celebrates Carabao Festival, where the carabaos are painted, dressed up and compete to be the most unique and beautiful carabao.  The town’s primary source of income is farming and the town government prohibits the indiscriminate slaughter of carabao to promote its carabao industry.  The ban has helped preserve the town’s carabao population.
