Pens With Stories: Salvaged Silky Oak
This is a pen with a story. This pen was made from some silky oak timber salvaged from Steve’s house when he renovated it. The timber was part of the main entry way to the house and everyone who entered the home passed under this piece of wood. Silky oak is a light to medium reddish brown Australian timber, it is highly figured and has a very distinctive grain.
This 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 process and 10 coats of CA we highlight the simple, innate beauty of the silky oak timber and create an exceptional and durable finish.
This sierra style pen has gold fittings and features a smooth click mechanism which reveals the nib. It has black ink and takes a standard Parker style pen refill. Find our quality parker style pen refills here. The natural uniqueness in the woodgrain and timber colour variations, means that each wooden pen we create is one of a kind.
This pen comes standard in protective velvet pen sleeve. You can add a quality black gift box for an extra $5 (option below) or message us to discuss our timber box options.
