Each Stratus 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 highlight the simple, innate beauty of the timber and create an exceptional, super glossy and durable finish.
This Stratus pen features 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.
This pen comes in a protective velvet sleeve. You can add a quality black presentation box, or engrave-able timber box below.
