A pen to go with you everywhere you want. Simply twist the tip and write away!
Crafted from a single piece of Banksia seed pod – native to Australia. Once it seeds, the Banksia pod is littered with small oval holes where the seed used to be. The positioning of each seed is different from each side of the pod and from pod to pod making truly remarkable patterns once the holes have been filled.
The wood is turned to a barrel shape and finished with Pure Tung Oil and Carnauba-based Wax. The Tung Oil penetrates the wood to emphasize the grain and colour. The oil does not contain artificial thinners or cure-accelerants and is approved for food-contact items. The Carnauba-based wax forms a light 'skin' finish which serves as an additional layer of protection. The combination of the two finishes emphasize the beauty of the wood while preserving its natural feel.
The hardware has a rhodium finish with black titanium accents along with a Swarovski crystal on the clip.
The pen is only available in ballpoint format and takes on a standard Parker style refill. To access the refill, simply unscrew the tip from the middle. Make sure you retain and install the spring on the new refill.
Customization for this pen is not available due to the dark colour of the wood.
