The Gearshift pen range is bold and classy. The mechanism features a five-speed H pattern shifter and can be shifted just like the real thing! The cap features a car tire with a true to life tread and hubcap. The pen tip features the same tire tread as the cap. The shifter handle includes an etched five-speed pattern. The final touch is an industrialised crowbar clip attached to the gearshift pen body with two small screws. The quality metal fittings are a striking contrast with the individually handcrafted timber pen body. This pen has gunmetal grey fittings, chrome fittings are also available.
Every wooden pen is created by an artisan who turns each pen on a wood lathe in North Brisbane. Using a meticulous thirteen step sanding process and 10 coats of CA we highlight the simple, innate beauty of the timber and create an exceptional, super glossy and durable finish.
This Gearshift pen is made from purleheart timber. Purpleheart is an exotic timber from Central and South America. Purpleheart is highly prized due it is incredible natural purple colouring. When cut, the timber turns from a light brown to a rich aubergine purple colour. Exposure to ultraviolet light darkens the wood to a brown-purple colour. Purpleheart is extremely durable with a grain that is usually straight, but can occasionally be wavy or irregular. The natural uniqueness in the woodgrain and timber colour variations, means that each wooden pen we create is one of a kind.
This pen uses easily replaceable Parker style refills. It comes with a premium black ink Parker style pen refill, refills can be purchased below.
Gearshift pens come standard in a quality black presentation box.
