Gearshift - ballpoint pen in Bethlehem Olive wood
This is beautiful handmade ball point pen made from Bethlehem Olive wood with Gun metal coloured fittings. The pen features a Gearshift styled fitting to extend and retract the ballpoint refill.
The pen comes complete with a Parker style refill, replacements are readily available. The pen will be shipped in the case as pictured. The pen fits very nicely in the hand and is heavier than a standard twist pen.
The Olive tree is slow growing and can live for many years. At the age of around 200 years new shoots develop at the base of the trunk and eventually grow into a new tree, hence the olive tree is known as the "immortal tree".
These very rare olive wood blanks are produced from the trimmings of the olive trees in the Holy Land. An essential process for a healthier growth for the trees. No Tree is damaged or destroyed in the process of harvesting this wood.
A small gift card will be sent with the item giving details of the Olive 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, polished and waxed to its final finish. Assembly is completed by using pre-made high quality pen components for long lasting performance and reliability.
