The Squire pen is a writing instrument with a slight nod to a bygone era while retaining modern sleekness and function.
The Squire pen has a 123mm body designed to allow the timber to be a highlight. It also features low profile diamond texturing known as knurling on the cap and tip finials. Knurling adds texture and is very eye catching. The pen fittings are antique brass plating. The antique brass is extremely durable and has a gorgeous aged appearance.
This ballpoint pen features a superior smooth twist mechanism revealing a Swiss made tungsten carbide ball refill with West German ink. It comes with black ink and takes a standard Parker style pen refill. Refills in blue or black can be purchased below.
Every Squire pen is created by an artisan who hand turns each pen on a wood lathe in North Brisbane. Using a meticulous thirteen step sanding and polishing process and 10 coats of CA we highlighted the simple, innate beauty of the timber and create an exceptional, super glossy and durable finish.
This pen is created 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 colonisation. 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 Squire pen comes in a quality, black presentation case or you can choose an engrave-able timber presentation box below.
