This matching handcrafted timber pen set makes a unique gift for weddings, engagements or anniversaries. These pens feature Australian spalted silky oak timber in the classy slimline style and an executive style.
These pens are 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 spalted silky oak timber. The natural uniqueness in the woodgrain and timber colour variations means that each wooden pen we create is one of a kind.
This silky oak timber is spalted. Spalting is a valued wood coloration process caused naturally by fungi. Spalting increases the contrasts of light and dark colours in the timber and makes brown and black lines running through the wood appear. This silky oak timber was grown on a beautiful block of land in Grafton owned by Rochelle's father and step mum. The tree fell due to natural causes and lay undisturbed in its bushland habitat enough years for the spalting process to begin. It was then carried on the shoulders of a man in a flannelette shirt, strapped onto the roof of a Toyota Landcruiser, travelled to sunny Queensland where is has been sawn into pen blanks, letter opener blanks and ice cream scoop blanks.
The executive pen features platinum fittings, a unique roller clip and a superior twist mechanism.
The slimline style pen has chrome fittings and features a high quality, smooth twist mechanism. Both of these beautiful timber pens use easily replaceable, standard ink refills, the executive comes with a premium black gel refill and the slimline with a black cross style refill.
