Phoenix ballpoint pen in reclaimed Oak from the Great Hall at Christ College in Oxford.
Christ College Oxford
This pen captures the story of the rebirth of the phoenix. The mythical flames burst into life at the tip with the re-born phoenix taking flight at the top. The phoenix’s tail becomes the clip. Amber crystals on the clip and cap add to the majesty of this regal creature.
To make the pen even more special it is made from reclaimed Oak flooring taken from the Great hall at Christ College Oxford, which was the inspiration for the great hall in the Harry Potter Movies.
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 pen is heavier than most but well balanced in the hand. It makes use of standard Parker type refills.
It will be supplied a black card case, along with a small certificate of authenticity for the wood. As each piece of wood is natural, the grain in your pen will be very slightly different than the one pictured.
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 with up to ten grades of sandpaper, sealed, polished and waxed to its final finish. Assembly is completed by using pre-made high quality pen components for long lasting performance.
