"Octagonal mechanical pencil" series

Since ancient times, the octagon has been said to be ``auspicious'' and has the meanings of ``prosperity,'' ``luck,'' and ``happiness.'' In Feng Shui, the octagon is considered the most auspicious shape. It has both yin and yang, and its well-balanced and stable shape is considered to be an auspicious item that improves your luck. In addition, the octagon is called "Hakke" and is said to have the power to repel bad energy, keep evil spirits away, and attract good fortune from all directions. The kanji character "eight" has long been said to mean "expanding at the end," and the octagonal shape is considered auspicious in both the East and the West.
Furthermore, in Christianity, the number 8 is considered important as it is a symbol of resurrection.

It grows in the savanna of Tanzania, Mozambique, etc.


The division of the sapwood is clear: the sapwood is yellowish-white, and the heartwood is dark purple-brown to black.
The wood is extremely heavy and hard, making it difficult to process. The surface of the material is dense, homogeneous, and has a glossy finish. The surface of the material has a slight oily taste.


It is used for woodwind instruments such as oboes and clarinets because it has a good sound quality and is suitable for potter's wheel processing. It is also used for fountain pen shafts, knife handles, walking sticks, inlays, etc.
