Fountain pen handmade in Yew from Buckland Abbey with satin gunmetal coloured fittings. The yew has been "cross cut" to give the amazing grain shown in the wood.
This is a beautiful quality handmade fountain 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 pen features a quality German made medium nib, it is approximately 130mm long and 15mm at the widest part including the cap, the pen is not postable.
The pen accepts small 'International' ink cartridges (one included), or a refillable ink reservoir also included.
The wood displays a stunning unique grain pattern after many years of drying in an old barn at Buckland Abbey.
Buckland Abbey was the family home of Sir Francis Drake. Drake lived there on and off for 14 years and the estate remained in the Drake family for several generations.
The pen will be shipped in the case as pictured. Along with a small certificate of 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.
