Story Wood Collection: Recycled Vintage Australian Red Cedar
This stylish timber sierra pen and matching letter opener is a beautiful, unique and functional gift for any occasion or just to spoil yourself.
The timber in this gift set is made from story wood. This Australian red cedar pen and letter opener used to be a dressing table. It was made in the 1940’s for Iris by her carpenter brother and spent many decades holding hairbrushes, mirrors and delicate embroidered handkerchiefs. When Iris passed away, the dresser was inherited by her daughter, Gail. Gail didn't have room in her home for the old but still so lovely dressing table, but wanted to preserve and honour her family heritage so she had pens made from the lovely vintage red cedar timber for herself and her three children (Iris’s grand children). This pen carries within it many family memories and comes with a story wood card.
Australian red cedar has a fine grain and beautiful deep-red colour and has very fine dark brown striations along the grain
This listing is for a Sierra click pen and dagger style letter opener with quality gold fittings in Australian red cedar timber.
This Sierra pen features a smooth click mechanism which reveals the nib. It has black ink and takes a standard Parker style pen refill. You can purchase a quality Parker style refill below. Each pen and letter opener is handcrafted by an artisan who turns each one on a lathe in North Brisbane. Using a meticulous thirteen step sanding process and 10 coats of CA we highlighted the simple, innate beauty of the timber and create an exceptional, super glossy and durable finish.
The Australian timber gift set comes in a black presentation case.
