Timber Fountain Pen - Frankie - Burdekin Plum Timber

    The Frankie is unapologetically sophisticated. A statement fountain pen with charm and promising an inspired writing experience.

    The Frankie features a modern gold plated design with a post-able faceted end cap in black. This well balanced pen has a German iridium nib for precision writing and uses easily replaceable international standard ink cartridges and comes with one black sample ink cartridge. It features an environmentally friendly piston converter that allows you to refill your fountain pen from bottled ink.

    This fountain pen is created from Burdekin plum timber. Burdekin plum is a native fruit tree which grows in North Queensland. The fruit is large, red-purple to black and contains a large stone, similar to plums. They may be eaten raw, as jams, or turned into wine, but are often tart. The aboriginals used to bury the fruits to allow them to ripen and sweeten. Burdekin plum timber is very decorative. It ranges from pale to dark reddish-brown, and is usually streaked with attractive darker coloured bands. The timber has historically been used for the manufacture of musical conductor’s batons and smoking pipes. 

    Every pen is unique and handcrafted by Brisbane wood artisans. We take raw timber through a meticulous 10 step process finishing with 12 coats of CA to highlight the innate beauty of the timber and create an exceptional, super glossy and durable finish.

    The Frankie fountain pen comes in a quality, black presentation case.

    Need it gift wrapped and posted direct to someone? Add the name and address of the receiver in the text box, we will gift wrap and send on your behalf. The package will include the senders name (yours) but will not include an invoice.

    We are handcrafted Australian timber pen specialists. We would be pleased to design and turn you a bespoke timber pen, pencil or wooden letter opener. You can even supply your own wood that holds precious memories.

    The Frankie is the perfect fountain pen for people named Frank, Franklin or Frankie and for people living in Frankston. It is also a great choice for birthday and for graduation gifts.
