A truly unique one of a kind writing instrument

Handmade Fountain pen from rare Pepperwood Burl. Burl wood offers a completely unique and impressive appearance, each pen incorporates the woods natural identity and features with no two ever the same.

Pepperwood is also known as Oregon Myrtle and California Bay Laurel

This pen is one of a kind, completely hand turned, including the grip / nib section and triple start thread. The use of this material is possible only through the complex and time intensive stabilisation process of the wood which is all done by myself in my workshop.

The pen body, cap and nib section are crafted from the Pepperwood burl, the pattern on this piece is truly a work of art from Mother Nature.

The pen is fitted with a Gold Plated Medium size 6 Bock nib. But other options are available including, Red Laquer, Bi Colour, Gold Plated, Polished Steel, Rose Gold Plated and Black Laquer. 

I can supply the nibs in the following sizes, Extra Fine, Fine, Medium, Broad and Extra Broad. 
The wood nib section has a light weight stainless steel sleeve added for strength.

The refilling system is a Beaufort premium ink convertor, but can also utilise a standard international cartridge.
