Ballpoint pen in Sycamore wood from Saltram House Plymouth
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 wood featured in this pen is Sycamore from the multi stem Sycamore tree that grows in the car park area of Saltram House in Plymouth. A single trunk had to be removed over the summer for safety reasons. The tree has been a focal point of children's play for several generations.
The pen accepts standard cross type refills which are widely available. 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.
