Sierra Wooden Mechanical Pencil - Australian Red Cedar 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 use.

    This timber pencil is handcrafted from Australian red cedar timber. Australian red cedar is possibly Australia's most celebrated native timber with its very fine grain in reddish brown and fine dark brown striations along the grain. In the 19th century red cedar dominated the interiors of colonial Australia and was used extravagantly for fine furniture and joinery in places such as Government House and Sydney Town Hall. Unfortunately many of the tall strands of red cedar were decimated on the NSW coast during the first 100 years of white settlement. In 1795 it became Australia’s first export as it was not economically sensible to send ships back on a six month voyage with an empty hold. Red cedar is still highly sought after and readily available in North Queensland. The natural uniqueness in the woodgrain and timber colour variations, means that each wooden pen 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 Australian red cedar 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.

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