Pencil in Spalted Beech from Cotehele House, Cornwall.
Spalted Beech Pencil
Quality wooden Mechanical pencil handmade in spalted beech grown at Cotehele house Cornwall. The pen features Gun metal coloured fittings which perfectly contrast with the wood.
Cotehele was the ancestral home to the Edgcumbe family for centuries. The Tudor house, is perched high above the River Tamar in the Parish of Calstock in the East of Cornwall. The house is one of the least altered Tudor houses in the UK.
This is a beautiful handmade quality pencil, the comfortable shape in the hand is complemented by the wonderful natural feel and warmth of the wood with a traditional wax finish.
The pencil accepts standard 0.7mm leads which are widely available. It will be shipped in the recyclable card case pictured, along with a small certificate giving details of the wood. The pencil has the slightly thicker centre than the other slimmer versions. The pencil is around 130mm long and around 10mm at its widest. Each pencil will vary from the one pictured as no two pieces of wood are quite the same.
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.
