The Squire pen is writing instrument with a slight nod to a bygone era while retaining modern sleekness and function.
The Squire pen has a 123mm body designed to allow the timber to be a highlight. It also features low profile diamond texturing known as knurling on the cap and tip finials. Knurling adds texture and is very eye catching.
The pen fittings are antique silver plating. Antique silver is extremely durable and has a gorgeous aged appearance.
This ballpoint pen features a superior smooth twist mechanism revealing a Swiss made tungsten carbide ball refill with West German ink. It comes with black ink and takes a standard Parker style pen refill. Refills in blue or black can be purchased below.
Every Squire 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 highlighted the simple, innate beauty of the timber and create an exceptional, super glossy and durable finish.
This pen is created from jacaranda timber. Jacaranda is a popular tree that is eye catching in spring throughout Australia with the tree ablaze with bright purple flowers. The timber is pale and creamy with a faint timber grain visible. It is not an Australian native tree but grows plentifully and is especially well known in the Grafton NSW region as well as Brisbane. Brisbane City Botanic Gardens is the site of Australia’s first grown jacaranda tree (planted in 1864). It was made famous by the artwork ‘Under the Jacaranda’ painted in1903. The first jacaranda remained tall and beautiful in the botanic gardens until 1979 when it was blown over in a cyclone. This jacaranda timber is from Grafton, NSW.
