The Phoenix pen is a very unique pen with the antique brass fittings fully capturing the myth in great detail. Flames are depicted at the tip of the pen, the phoenix is captured rising from the ashes and the clip details the majestic tail of the phoenix. An amber crystal on the clip and cap add to the beauty and majesty of this regal bird.
The phoenix bird was recently popularised by the Harry Potter books and films. This sacred firebird said to have spectacular feathers of gold and red. Its story has roots in many ancient civilizations - most notably the Egyptian and Greek. After 1,000 years the phoenix builds itself a nest of twigs and branches, which then burns fiercely until they are both ashes. From the ashes a young phoenix appears, renewing the life cycle of the bird and making the phoenix virtually immortal and invincible. This pen is particularly meaningful to those who have been through difficult times and triumphed.
This Phoenix pen is made from Australian gidgee timber. Australian gidgee wood is an acacia timber prized for its strength and durability. Gidgee is Australia's hardest timber (and the third hardest timber in the world). 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.
This wooden pen is created by an artisan who hand turns each pen on a 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. The natural uniqueness in the woodgrain and timber colour variations, means that each wooden pen we create is one of a kind.
The Phoenix pen is a solid, medium plus weight pen (65g) with a silent, smooth twist mechanism and features a black ink Parker style refill. Purchase quality Parker style refills below.
This pen comes in a quality, black presentation case.
