The wood featured in this Frankie pen is Australian red cedar timber. Australian red cedar is possibly Australia's most celebrated native timber with its very fine grain in reddish brownwith 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.
This pen was created by an artisan who hand turned this pen on a lathe in North Brisbane. Using a meticulous thirteen step sanding process and 10 coats of CA we highlighted the simple, innate beauty of the timber and create an exceptional, super glossy and durable finish. The natural uniqueness in the woodgrain and timber colour variations, means that each wooden pen we create is one of a kind.
The Frankie fountain pen comes in a quality, black presentation case or you can add an engrave-able timber pen box below.
