Wooden Stratus Pencil - Blackheart Sassafras

    Blackheart sassafras timber is grey to golden brown with a very fine grain. Some trees are infected with a fungus which causes attractive smokey grey streaks within the timber. The bark of the blackheart sassafras tree is aromatic and was used for brewing sassafras beer and the 1889 book The Useful Native Plants of Australia records that "The fragrant bark of this tree has been used as tea in Tasmania." The natural uniqueness in the woodgrain and timber colour variations, means that each wooden pencil we create is one of a kind.

    The classy and functional stratus mechanical pencil features quality chrome fittings.

    It has a heavy-duty, sturdy and reliable 2mm lead which makes it perfect for your desk, workshop, drafting table or studio. It includes an eraser and sharpener in the cap plunger and a 2mm pencil lead. The top, when unscrewed from the pencil, features an internal sharpener to renew the point. Buy additional pencil leads here.

    This wooden pencil is created by an artisan who hand turns each pencil 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 blackheart sassafras timber and create an exceptional and durable finish.
