Wooden Pen - Blackheart Sassafras Timber (Stratus Style)

    The Stratus pen features a sleek and modern design that has great balance for a superior and comfortable writing experience.

    The Stratus pen features quality chrome fittings which provide a stunning contrast to the 7cm timber pen body. The smooth action click mechanism is super quiet, it holds a Parker style refill and comes loaded with a quality black Parker style refill. Find our quality Parker style pen refills below. 

    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 process and 10 coats of CA we highlight the simple, innate beauty of the timber and create an exceptional, super shiny and durable finish.

    This Stratus pen is created from blackheart sassafras timber. Blackheart sassafras timber is grey to golden brown with a very fine grain. Some trees are infected with a fungus which causes 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 pen comes in a protective sleeve. You can add a quality black presentation box or an engrave-able timber box options below.

    The Stratus is also available as a pencil. A matching bespoke timber pen and pencil makes a lovely gift set. Contact us for a custom order.
