Story Wood Collection: Spalted Silky Oak Timber
The Sierra is our signature range. The Sierra's definitive and functional characteristics make this matching pen and letter opener the perfect gift set for every day use. It is a beautiful gift for any occasion or just to spoil yourself.
This listing is for a Sierra pen and Kent letter opener with quality 24k gold plated fittings featuring spalted silky oak timber. Spalting is a valued wood colouration process caused naturally by fungi. Spalting increases the contrasts of light and dark colours in the timber and makes brown and black lines running through the wood appear. This timber was grown on a beautiful block of land in Grafton owned by my father and fell due to natural causes and lay undisturbed in its bushland habitat enough years for the spalting process to begin. It was then carried on the shoulders of a man in a flannelette shirt, strapped onto the roof of a Toyota Landcruiser, travelling to sunny Queensland where is has been handcrafted into pens, fountain pens, pencils and letter openers.
This Sierra pen features a smooth click mechanism which reveals the nib. It takes a standard Parker style pen refill and comes loaded with black ink and is easily refillable. Each pen and letter opener is handcrafted by an wood artisan who turns each one on a lathe in North Brisbane. Using a meticulous thirteen step sanding and polishing process and 10 coats of CA we highlighted the simple, innate beauty of the timber and create an exceptional, super glossy and durable finish.
This timber gift set comes in a black presentation case.
