ABOUT MY BEAVER-CHEWED-STICK PENS:
Handmade pens are a commonplace item these days, but where else can you find a pen that's made by both the hands of a human and the teeth of a beaver?

My beaver-stick pens are made from genuine beaver-chewed sticks, collected from streams and ponds near my home in rural Massachusetts. As you might imagine, finding sticks that are the right combination of a good diameter, straightness, and attractively beaver-chewed isn't easy.

To make a stick into a pen, I carefully drill out the center of the stick and install commercially-made pen parts and mechanisms. These parts come from the same pen kits that are sold for use in lathe-turned handmade pens. The wood is finished with multiple coats of tough polyurethane.

These are quality, fully-functional pens. The ballpoint tip extends and retracts when you twist the two sections of the pen body. The internal pen mechanisms are made entirely of brass and steel and should last a lifetime. These pens can be opened to replace the refill and they ship with genuine Cross brand refills for the best writing experience.

NOTE:
I ship each pen with a "certificate of authenticity" printed on the back of one of my business cards. This describes the materials and making of the pen. If you're giving a beaver-stick pen as a gift, this will make a nice addition to that gift.

ABOUT THIS PEN:
This pen is 6-3/4 inches (17 cm) long and about 3/8 inch (1 cm) in diameter. At the top of the pen a beaver has nipped off the end of the stick and two forking branches as well. Most of the bark has been nibbled off of this stick (tree bark is a favorite food of beavers), leaving behind a small patch of interesting silvery bark at the top. The traces of brown on the body of the pen are also bits of left-behind cambium (under-bark), and if you look closely you can see faint tooth marks all along the length of the pen. As shown in one of the photos, the pen comes with an attractive cotton filled gift box.

I don't think you can beat a beaver-stick pen for its utter uniqueness, nor can I imagine a pen with a more endearing story behind it -- the story of one of nature's most charming creatures enjoying a nice meal. Whether for signing important documents or scribbling out a shopping list, a beaver-stick pen is sure to bring joy to whoever uses it.
