Blackheart sassafras Blackheart sassafras timber is golden brown with grey streaks in the very fine grain. Sassafras trees can become infected with a fungus which causes the attractive smokey grey streaks within the timber. The bark of the blackheart sassafras tree is aromatic and was used for brewing sassafras beer and the 1889 book The Useful Native Plants of Australia records that "The fragrant bark of this tree has been used as tea in Tasmania."
This 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 blackheart sassafras timber and create an exceptional and durable finish. The natural uniqueness in the woodgrain and timber colour variations, means that each wooden pen we create is one of a kind.
