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 Spalted Maple from Goderich, Ontario, this pen showcases the absolute uniqueness of the wood. This particular wood piece comes from the area that is close to the bark (seen close to the nib). An abolutely amazing array of colour and grain pattern. A turly unique piece of wood that is not found anywhere else.
The StreamlinePlus pens feature a wood centre band as opposed to the metal one on the regular Streamline pens. For this pen, the centre band is made from African Padauk – a tree native to Central and tropical West Africa. The red colour of the African Padauk stands out against the white wood of the Maple and compliments the reddish brown colours of the spalted areas.
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 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.
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.

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.
