A beautiful yet functional pen for all your daily writing needs. Simply twist the halves and write away!
Hand-crafted from a single piece of Red Mallee Burl – a tree native to Australia. The tree is short in stature and not available as lumber; but the tree does produce a lot burls. The burl has quite distinctie sapwood and heartwood. The sapwood is yellowing to gray; whereas the heartwood is red in colour. The presense of sapwood in the same piece is quite rate and majority of the writing instruments will be done will be made from the heartwood.
The StreamlineBetterGrip pens feature a slightly larger assymetrical shape to the tip section of the pen giving much larger area to grip; the rest of the pen has a barrel shape.
The wood 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 chrome finish and available as a ballpoint pen with a Cross-style refill. To access the refill, separate the two halves applying consistent force; then unscrew the refill from the twist mechanism.
