Australian gidgee wood is an acacia timber prized for its strength and durability. Gidgee is Australia's hardest timber (and the third hardest timber in the world). The heartwood is a deep, rich brown colour and the outer wood is very pale. Gidgee timber has a very fine grain and contrasts well with the gold fittings.
This jedona style wooden fountain pen is created by an artisan who hand turns each pen on a lathe in North Brisbane. Using a meticulous thirteen step sanding process and 10 coats of CA we highlight the simple, innate beauty of the Australian gidgee timber. The natural uniqueness in the woodgrain and timber colour variations, means that each wooden fountain pen we create is one of a kind.
This stunning, luxury fountain pen features gold coloured fittings and a durable iridium nib made in Germany. It features a 12 facet pen grip and a centre band inlaid with a geometric swirl pattern. The pen lid unscrews and the threaded lid can be effortlessly placed on the end of the pen so it never gets misplaced. The pen comes in a quality, black presentation case or you can add an engrave-able timber box, option below.
This beautiful pen uses easily replaceable, black ink cartridges. The pen comes with one ink cartridge. (click here to buy an extra fountain pen refill). It also features an environmentally friendly piston converter mechanism that allows you to refill your fountain pen from bottled ink.
