This listing is for a matching timber Sierra pen and pencil gift set turned from liquid ambar timber.
Liquid ambar is a popular ornamental deciduous tree, and looks particularly spectacular in autumn as the tree sheds its star-shaped leaves. Liquid ambar is also called sweetgum and is native to America but grows readily in Australia. The genus name literally means liquid amber, referring to the resin exuded by the winter buds. The resin has been used in perfume, cosmetics and as chewing gum. Promising research is being conducted on the medicinal properties of liquid ambars resin, leaves, bark and seeds. The timber is usually bright reddish brown, the older the tree the more red the timber. This liquid ambar is a smokey grey colour, and is cut from some small branches grown in Brisbane, QLD.
This pen and pencil set is handcrafted by an artisan who hand turns each item 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 liquid ambar timber and create an exceptional, super shiny and durable finish.
This Sierra pen has 24k gold plated fittings and features a smooth click mechanism which reveals the nib. It is loaded with a quality black Parker style pen refill and is easily refillable.
