Bog Oak pen

Quality handmade wooden ballpoint twist pen handmade in English Fenland Bog Oak. The pen features gold coloured fittings which perfectly compliment the wood.
This is a beautiful handmade quality pen, the comfortable shape in the hand is complemented by the wonderful natural feel and warmth of the wood with a traditional wax finish.

Around 5000BC a rise in sea level caused the Fens to flood. The old growth trees died where they stood, eventually falling into the silt that now covered the forest floor. Some were preserved in the anaerobic conditions only to be disturbed thousands of years later by farmers now cultivating this rich land. Some of theses Sub-fossilised tress are found with trunks in excess of 100ft.

The Bog oak has a weight and density to rival the most highly valued tropical hardwoods.

The pen accepts standard cross® type refills which are widely available. It includes a quality refill with black ink. It will be shipped in the case pictured, along with a small certificate giving details of the wood.

All pens are handmade by me beginning with rough cut woods for the body. The body of the pen is turned on a lathe to the final shape as seen on each pen. The body is then sanded, sealed, waxed and polished to its final finish. Assembly is completed by using pre-made high quality pen components for long lasting performance.
