Handcrafted Wooden Pen - El Grande Fountain Pen in Exquisite Thuya Burl with a Durable Bright Platinum Finish
My handcrafted El Grande wooden Fountain Pen in exquisite Thuya Burl is trimmed in a durable bright Platinum finish. This pen is very highly detailed and looks spectacular in this traditional pen style. The pen is from my El Grande pen line, and is one of the largest pens I make. The gold iridium fountain pen nib writes extremely smooth and the pen is a pleasure to write with and has a great hand feel and balance designed into it.
My pens are great for personal use or as an exquisite gift for that special someone, birthday wedding, anniversary, client, guest, holiday, etc.
If you’ve never had a pen made from a piece of burl, you don’t know what you have missed with the swirls, voids, colors and eyes throughout the burl! A presentation box is included.
Thuya Burl exhibits the best eyes and reddish orange creamy color of any burl I've seen - it is just spectacular! Clusters of small black dots, or "bird's eyes," often accentuate this handsome wood. Thuya Burl is becoming very scarce and bidding on pieces that hit the market has risen dramatically over the past couple of years. This pen is quite exquisite given how difficult it can be to obtain, and even work with this burl. I have left some of the feel in the voids and swirls around t he barrel of the pen for that rustic feel.
Thuya burls were first discovered in Morocco, where most of the trees (or stumps of trees) are located in the Atlas Mountains and the burls must first be unearthed and then carried down the mountains on donkey back. It's easy to understand, though, why Thuya Burl is considered something of a national treasure in Morocco.
All my pens are turned by me on my lathe and undergo an 18 step finishing and polishing process to bring out the fantastic colors embedded within the wood and highlight the grain.
Custom Handcrafted Pens make great gifts!
I do not use inferior woods, acrylic formulations or pen mechanisms in any of my pens or pencils!
This handmade pen is a higher end fountain pen trimmed in durable bright Platinum plated finish and uses an ink cartridge or ink converter (both are included). Refill cartridges and ink bottles are readily available at stationery stores everywhere (or through my website). This is a highly polished and exquisite pen and requires little maintenance to retain its luster.
Thuya Burl will naturally darken over time to show that well used, trusty old pen.
