Urban Rollerball Pen - Australian Red Cedar Timber

    The Urban pen range is ultra modern and clip free. The 303 stainless steel body boasts an agreeable weight and the premium Schmidt fine point ceramic rollerball ensures a fluent writing experience. Innate differences in the timber means that every Urban pen we handcraft is unique.

    This pen is crafted from Australian red cedar timber. Australian red cedar is possibly Australia's most celebrated native timber with its very fine grain in reddish brown and fine dark brown striations along the grain. In the 19th century red cedar dominated the interiors of colonial Australia and was used extravagantly for fine furniture and joinery in places such as Government House and Sydney Town Hall. Unfortunately many of the tall strands of red cedar were decimated on the NSW coast during the first 100 years of white settlement. In 1795 it became Australia’s first export as it was not economically sensible to send ships back on a six month voyage with an empty hold. Red cedar is still highly sought after and readily available in North Queensland.

    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.
