-Fine timber pen-Red Mallee burl-Australian motifs mid band

$60.00 ex GST

Slimline Red Mallee burl timber ball point pen with a special metal mid band featuring iconic Australian motifs (kangaroo, koala and emu).

Each pen is hand turned from Australian timbers.  The pen is lightweight, comfortable in the hand and its timber has unique character.  These high quality, hand worked pens make ideal work gifts for overseas visitors and your business associates.

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

Pen Care:

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.
