The Trek, in mango and chrome
The Trek is a no-nonsense click action ballpoint pen perfect for any situation! It's solid build allows it to be thrown in a rucksack and is ideal for anyone planning on taking notes on the go. Being a click pen it is operated with a single hand: no more fiddling with a cap or twist action whilst trying to hold a map or notepad.
Don't be fooled by the somewhat rugged design: the smooth lines of the hardware perfectly compliment the upper and lower barrels, which have been delicately shaped and polished to a fine finish.

Wood used to craft this pen:
Hopping Frog Pens takes deforestation, and the far reaching effects of this, very seriously. Climate change and environmental impact are areas which HFP is passionate to help protect, and when purchasing timber we will not entertain anything which isn’t from a sustainable source.
This does mean that we cannot offer some of the more exotic, or endangered species, however, you as the buyer can be absolutely confident that the pen you are buying isn’t having a negative impact on the world!
Common Name(s): Mango, Hawaiian Mango
Scientific Name: Mangifera indica
Distribution: Tropical Asia and Oceania
Tree Size: 80-100 ft (24-30 m) tall, 3-4 ft (1-1.2 m) trunk diameter
Color/Appearance: Because of the spalting that is commonly present, the wood can be a kaleidoscope of colors. Under normal circumstances, heartwood is a golden brown, while other colors such as yellow and streaks of pink and/or black can also occur. Paler sapwood is not always clearly defined. Curly or mottled grain patterns are also common.
Known much more widely for its fruit, Mango trees also yield beautiful and valuable lumber. The wood is considered very eco-friendly, as some Mango plantations harvest the trees for lumber after they have completed their useful fruit-bearing lifespan.
