Story Wood Collection: Salvaged Tasmanian Oak Timber
The Harold fountain pen is a masterpiece. It is a classically styled, full sized, sophisticated pen.
The timber featured in this wooden fountain pen is Tasmanian oak. This Tasmanian oak timber has a story, it used to be a lounge chair. The wood is salvaged from a couch made by a craftsman in Maroochydore QLD in 1996. It was made for some newlywed adventurers who lived in 12 houses in 2 Australian states spanning 19 years and watched 3 kids grow from baby to adulthood. Sadly the couch broke. This timber carries within it lots of great family vibes, fun memories and meaningful conversations over coffee.
Tasmanian oak refers to three eucalypt species commonly found in Tasmania, as well as alpine regions in Victoria and NSW. Tassie oaks grow up to 90m in height. Tasmanian oak timber is generally a warm, light toned Australian hardwood with a dense, even grain; it is a distinctive and beautiful wood.
Not only does the Harold fountain pen look and feel amazing with its medium plus weight (60g), it has a timeless design quality. It feels perfectly balanced in the hand, and is pure pleasure to write with. The Harold features gold titanium plating which is extremely durable and has a bright yellow mirror finish appearance. It has a non-postable end cap, the German made iridium nib is approx 0.5mm writing width, (number 6 size nib).
This stunning fountain pen uses easily replaceable ink cartridges and comes with one black ink cartridge and you can purchase additional fountain pen cartridges below. It also features an environmentally friendly piston converter that allows you to refill your pen from bottled ink.
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 Harold fountain comes in a quality, black presentation case.
