A pen or a pencil to go with you everywhere you want. Simply twist and write away!
Crafted from a Maple tree that has lived and died in Goderich ON. This particular maple tree has a miriad of colours, shades, and textures. For this particular writing instrument, the piece of wood displays the amazing colours around a knot in the tree.
The wooden body has a barrel shape and is 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 chrome finish with black accents. The pen is available as a ballpoint pen or a mechanical pencil (with shorter wooden body than the pen).
The ballpoint pen takes a standard Parker style refill. To access the refill, unscrew the writing tip. Make sure you retain and install the spring on the new refill.
The mechanical pencil takes 0.7mm pencil leads. To access the eraser, separate the two halves; to access the lead chamber, remove the eraser.
Customization for this pen is available. Customization comes in the form of an inscription of up to 5 words that will be burnt onto the wood in one or two lines matching, as closely as possible, the font you provide. To have your pen customized, simply select 'Customize Tip Section' or 'Customize Clip Section' in the customization option and upload an image with your text.
A unique creation by man using nature's gifts and it all fits right into your hand. Complimentary velvet pouch is included with the purchase; the pen holder in the images is sold separately.
Note: the weight is in grams; the dimensions are in millimeters and shown as length of closed pen by height of pen with clip by largest diameter of the wooden body.
