There are more than 700 species of eucalyptus trees and all but 15 are native to Australia. Australia is covered by 92,000,000 hectares of eucalypt forest. Eucalyptus timber is commonly used to make didgeridoos, a traditional wind instrument of indigenous Australians. The eucalyptus timber in this pen is an unidentified species of eucalyptus. The woodgrain and timber colour variations, means that each wooden pencil we create is one of a kind.
This distinctive wooden pencil is created by an artisan who hand turns each pencil 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 eucalyptus timber and create an exceptional and durable finish.
This sierra style mechanical pencil has black and 24 karat gold plated fittings and features a click mechanism which reveals the pencil lead. It comes ready to draw with one 0.7mm pencil lead, you can find mechanical pencil refills here. It has an eraser at the end of the cap. To access the eraser, remove the end cap; to access the pencil lead chamber and add your refills, remove the eraser.
We can also handcraft you a sierra style timber pen that will match your timber pencil or we can make you a matching letter opener from the same wood which makes a lovely custom gift set.
