This silky oak timber is spalted. Spalting is a valued wood colouration 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 timber was grown on a beautiful block of land in Grafton owned by my father and 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 pens, pencils, letter opener and ice cream scoop blanks.
This jedona style wooden rollerball 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 Australian spalted silky oak timber. The natural uniqueness in the woodgrain and timber colour variations, means that each timber pen we create is one of a kind.
This stunning rollerball pen features gold fittings and a durable iridium point rollerball nib made in Germany. It also features a 12 facet pen grip and a centre band inlaid with a geometric pattern. The pen lid unscrews and the threaded lid can be effortlessly placed on the end of the pen so it never gets misplaced. The pen comes in a quality, black presentation case or you can add an engrave-able timber box, option below.
This beautiful pen uses easily replaceable, rollerball refills and comes fitted with a premium black rollerball refill. Buy additional rollerball refills here.
