Sierra Wooden Mechanical Pencil - Gidgee Timber

    The Sierra is our signature range, a definitive, functional and popular writing and drawing instrument. It is the perfect gift pencil and popular for everyday writing.

    This pencil is handcrafted from gidgee timber. Australian gidgee wood is an acacia timber prized for its strength and durability. Gidgee is Australia's hardest timber (and the third hardest timber in the world). The heartwood is a deep, rich brown colour and the outer wood is very pale. Gidgee timber has a very fine grain. The natural uniqueness in 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 and polishing process and 10 coats of CA we highlight the simple, innate beauty of the gidgee timber and create an exceptional, super shiny and durable finish.

    This Sierra style mechanical pencil has black and 24k 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.

    This pencil comes standard in a protective velvet pen sleeve. You can add a quality black presentation box or an engrave-able timber box below.

    Want a gift set? 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.
