Story Wood Collection: Recycled Vintage 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 and spent many decades holding hairbrushes, mirrors and delicate embroidered handkerchiefs. 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 is possibly Australia's most celebrated native timber with a light, fine-grain and a beautiful, even, deep-red colour.
The timeless, sleek design of the Slimline pen is unsurpassable. It rests lightly in the hand and writes beautifully.
This Slimline pen has gold fittings and features a high quality, smooth, twist mechanism. This pen takes a standard cross style pen refill and comes with a quality black ink refill, additional pen refills can be added at checkout.
This timber 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.
The Slimline comes standard in a protective velvet pen sleeve. You can add a quality black presentation box or an engrave-able timber pen box below.
