Maple and padauk mirror one another in this elegant handcrafted wood pen with a timeless look. This writing instrument is very comfortable in the hand. It has a subtly curving form, a little shorter than your average pen but slightly more substantial to hold. It's really a joy to use.

The elements of this wooden pen were painstakingly assembled, then drilled, lathed and sanded by hand up to 600 grit. It received a thin coat of teak oil to give the subtle grain some depth. It was then given a 9-layer coat of durable cyanoacrylate buffed to a high shine.

John Redfield, this pen's artist, then placed the wood in its 24k gold plate setting. His choice of gold adds just the right touch to the tasteful look of this pen. This classic beauty opens with a twist, is set in gold executive parts and writes in black ballpoint ink. Ink refill cartridges are available in any office supply store, ensuring the owner of this work of art will enjoy it for years to come.

This pen is one of a kind, hand-shaped on a lathe and coated to a durable gloss shine to make your writing instrument an eye-catching work of useful art.
