Urban Fountain Pen - Silky Oak Timber

    The Urban pen range is ultra modern and clip free. The 303 stainless steel body boasts an agreeable weight and the quality German iridium nib ensures a fluent writing experience. Innate differences in the timber means that every Urban pen we handcraft is unique.

    This fountain pen is crafted from Australian 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.

    The fittings in this pen are machined from raw 303 stainless steel making them unbeatable for toughness and corrosion resistance. The precision machined threads are smooth and the post-able cap fits snugly on the end. The steel is complemented by a timber pen body crafted on a wood lathe by Brisbane wood artisans. The pen is meticulously hand finished with 10 coats of CA and is presented in a quality black pen box or you can choose an engrave-able timber pen box below.
