Pens with a Story Collection: Australian Red Cedar
This Australian red cedar pen used to be a dressing table. It was made in the 1940’s for Iris by her carpenter brother. When Iris passed away the dresser was inherited by her daughter, Gail. Gail didn't have room in her home for the old but still so lovely dressing table, but wanted to preserve and honour her family heritage so she had pens made from the lovely vintage red cedar timber for herself and her three children (Iris’s grand children). This pen carries within it many family memories.
Australian red cedar (Toona ciliatavar. australis) is possibly Australia's most celebrated native timber with a light, fine-grain and a beautiful even deep-red colour.
This distinctive wooden pen is created by an artisan who hand turns each pen 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 warm Australian red cedar timber. Our finish is highly durable, smooth and glossy.
This sierra style pen has black and chrome fittings and features a click mechanism which reveals the nib (gold fittings available also). It comes with black ink and takes a standard Parker pen refill. Find our quality Dayacom Parker style pen refills here.
