Ballpoint pen in Italian Olive wood

  • £24.50

Quality handmade wooden ballpoint twist pen handmade in Italian Olive wood. The pen features Matt finished black enamel coloured fittings which perfectly contrast with the wood.

The wood is imported from the area around Reggio in Southern Italy and was seasoned for several years in the Warm Italian Sunshine.

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.

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".

A small gift card will be sent with the item giving details of the Olive wood.

The pen accepts standard cross® type refills which are widely available. It will be shipped in the environmental friendly card case as pictured.

the cross® refills can be found here;

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.
