Lignum Vitae info

This wood species is in CITES Appendix II, and is on the IUCN Red List. It is listed as endangered because populations are severely reduced and exploitation for both its wood and resin extracts have continued for hundreds of years. However the wood I have in stock was collected by my father many years ago, once stocks have been used there will be no more being made.

This is a Pen for life, reducing plastic waste and using sustainable materials. Refills are available for all pen types.

Top quality fittings to improve the user experience

This is a Parker type pen and is a twist action to propel & retract the nib.

This is made from Mottled beech wood, the fittings are Gold plated with black accents.

Comes complete in one of my own made Spalted Beech wood bespoke box boxes.

Using the quality materials, I have hand turned each individual pen myself., materials are responsibly sourced.

This is done on a wood lathe using chisels with the wood spinning at over 3000rpm I turn it down to size and finished shape.

Once shaped and I am happy with the look and feel I then start the process of sanding and polishing which is done with papers as fine as 12000.

Each pen is then finished to suit with an extremely durable finish, giving the wood the ultimate shine and appearance with a finish that will last.

Compatible with 'Parker-style' refills.
