Seam Ripper in Leyland Cypress from St Mary's church Walkhampton
St Mary's Dartmoor seam ripper
Lovely handmade wooden handled double ended seam ripper in Leyland Cypress(Cupressus x leylandii). Featuring gold coloured fittings which perfectly compliment the wood.
The wood featured in this pen Leyland Cypress grown in the church yard of St Mary's church Walkhampton. The tree's were planted to mark the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Victoria in 1897. They were felled in late 2018 as they were beginning to cause damage to the boundary retaining walls they had been planted next too.
The Leyland Cypress is a hybrid between Monterey Cypress (Cupressus macrocarpa) and Alaskan Yellow Cedar (Cupressus nootkatensis).
It will be shipped in the recyclable card case pictured, along with a small certificate giving details of the wood.
All items 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.
