This special pen was turned from a ‘burl’ which is a tree growth produced by the tree to heal damaged trunks. It is commonly found in the form of a rounded outgrowth on a tree trunk or branch that is filled with small knots from dormant buds. It has an organic pattern giving it a very distinctive quality. The pen has a special metal mid band with iconic Australian motifs.
Dimensions: 13 cm x 1 cm
Materials: Red Mallee burl timber
Timber’s natural oils can dry out and wood may crack if your pen is exposed to heat. From time to time re-polish the timber with a tiny dab of furniture wax such as a beeswax based product. All timber darkens with age.
Changing the refill is simple. Twist the top and bottom in opposite directions while pulling apart. Unscrew the refill and pull it out of the twist barrel. Screw in a new refill [sold by stationers] and then simply push the two halves of the pen back together.
