The Sierra is our signature range, a definitive, functional and popular writing instrument. These pens are a popular style for gifts and for everyday writing.
This Sierra pen is turned from gidgee timber. Australian gidgee wood is an acacia timber prized for its strength and durability. Gidgee is one of Australia's hardest timbers. The heartwood is a deep, rich brown colour and the outer sapwood is very pale. Gidgee timber has a very fine grain and can be highly figured. The indigenous Kalkadoon people made nulla nulla's, shields, boomerangs, swords and clapsticks from gidgee’s rich, brown wood. It is popular today for knife making, turned bowls, pens and jewellery boxes and recently musical instrument makers have begun using it. The natural uniqueness in the woodgrain and timber colour variations, means that each wooden pen we create is one of a kind, and they make excellent gifts.
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 and polishing process and 10 coats of CA we highlight the simple, innate beauty of the gidgee timber. Our finish is highly durable, smooth and super glossy.
This Sierra pen has black and 24kt gold plated fittings and features a smooth click mechanism which reveals the nib. It comes with a premium black ink refill and takes a standard Parker style pen refill. Find our quality Parker style refills here.
