The Sierra is our signature range, a definitive, functional and popular writing instrument. A great gift choice and as an every day writing instrument.
This Sierra pen is turned from liquid ambar timber. Liquid ambar is a popular ornamental deciduous tree, and looks particularly spectacular in autumn as the tree sheds its star-shaped leaves. Liquid ambar is also called sweetgum and is native to America but grows readily in Australia. The genus name literally means liquid amber, referring to the resin exuded by the winter buds. The resin has been used in perfume, cosmetics and as chewing gum. Promising research is being conducted on the medicinal properties of liquid ambars resin, leaves, bark and seeds. The timber is usually bright reddish brown, the older the tree the more red the timber. This liquid amber timber is a smokey grey colour, and is cut from some small branches grown in Brisbane, QLD.
This Sierra 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 highlighted the simple, innate beauty of the timber and create an exceptional, super glossy and durable finish.
This Sierra has 24k gold plated fittings and features a smooth click mechanism which reveals the nib. It takes a standard Parker style pen refill, and comes with a quality black ink refill, you can also add additional pen refills below.
This pen comes standard in a protective velvet pen sleeve. You can purchase a quality black pen box or engrave-able timber box below.
