A beautiful yet functional pen or stylus for all your daily writing needs. Simply twist the halves and write away!
Crafted from a single piece of Myrtle; however this piece comes of Myrtle comes from the coastal regions of Oregon and central California. This particular species of Myrtle is characterized by light brown to gray or olive heartwood colour with dark streaks running along the wood. It is interesting to note that this species of Myrtle is not related to the Myrtus genus (true Myrtle), but classified in the Umbellularia genus. Some of the local names include California Laurel or Oregon Myrtle.
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.
Available in two styles: ballpoint pen and ballpoint pen with stylus tip.
The ballpoint pens (with or without stylus) come with a Cross-style refill. To access the refill, separate the two halves applying consistent force while ensuring that you don't lose the centre band; then unscrew the refill from the twist mechanism.
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.
