Natural Finish - Silky Oak Timber Slimline Pen

    The warmth, texture and familiarity of natural timber in this range of pens enchants us back to:

    • a childhood lived outdoors
    • family camping trips
    • backyard BBQ's
    • wilderness wanderings

    Our natural finish is a call back to simplicity and a reminder of the tranquility and beauty of nature. We individually shape and sand the body of each timber pen until it is silky smooth and then friction polish it at high speed on the wood lathe. The wooden pen takes on a glorious natural patina and reveals a texture that is warm and grounding. 

    The timeless, sleek design of the Slimline is unsurpassable. It rests lightly in the hand and writes beautifully. It has gold fittings and features a high quality, smooth, twist mechanism and comes loaded with a quality black cross style refill.

    This pen is created from silky oak timber. Silky oak is one of the most popular ornamental native trees in Australia with it’s stunning vibrant orange, toothbrush like flowers. Silky oak timber was once used extensively in North Queensland for house framing, cladding, moulding, joinery, windows and flooring. There is much vintage furniture displaying silky oak's coarse, variable, decorative and textured grain within the wood. Silky oak is a light to medium reddish brown timber, it is highly figured, with distinctive grain and large medullary rays. Silky oak has long been a favourite of furniture makers, wood turners and carvers.

    This Slimline pen comes standard in a protective velvet pen sleeve. You can add a quality black presentation box or an engrave-able timber pen box below.
