Pens With A Story: Salvaged Silky Oak
This is a pen with a story. This pen was made from some silky oak timber salvaged from Steve’s house when he renovated it. The timber was part of the main entry way to the house and everyone who entered the home passed under this piece of wood. Silky oak is a light to medium reddish brown Australian timber, it is highly figured and has a very distinctive grain.
The elegantly simple duchess style pen is well proportioned to fit a woman’s hand. It features 24kt gold fittings and eight clear Swarovski crystals, and a solid etched metal cap. It truly feels wonderful in the hand, light, slim and a lovely contour.
This pen is created by an artisan who hand turns each pen on a wood lathe in North Brisbane.All our timber pens are made using a meticulous thirteen step sanding process and with 10 coats of CA we highlight the simple, innate beauty of the timber. The natural uniqueness in the woodgrain and timber colour variations, means that each wooden pen we create is one of a kind.
This pen comes standard in a quality black pen box. You can also choose an engrave-able timber pen box (option below).
