The timeless, sleek design of the Slimline pencil is unsurpassable. It rests lightly in the hand and writes and sketches beautifully.
This pencil is handcrafted from rain tree timber. Rain trees are massive umbrella-shaped trees that grow to 60 m tall with a crown up to 80 m wide. It is particularly valued for its timber, and for shading crops but also supplies medicine for stomach ache, sore throats and skin conditions. Rain tree pods are edible, containing a brownish, sticky, liquorice-like, sweet-flavoured pulp. A lemon-like fruit drink can also be made from the pulp. The popular, heavily striated rain tree timber is straw to smokey coloured and commonly found growing in tropical north Queensland, though it is not an Australian native, it is a truly stunning timber.
This wooden pencil is created by an artisan who hand turns each pencil on a wood lathe in North Brisbane. Using a meticulous thirteen step sanding and polishing process and 10 coats of CA we highlight the simple, innate beauty of the gidgee timber and create an exceptional, super glossy and durable finish. The natural uniqueness in the woodgrain and timber colour variations, means that each bespoke pencil we create are one of a kind.
