Wooden pen handmade in Black Walnut wood. This is a beautiful handmade quality ball point pen. The comfortable shape in the hand is complemented by the wonderful natural feel and warmth of the wood with a traditional wax finish. The pen is made from Black Walnut wood with Black Titanium coloured fittings. It makes use of standard Cross type type refills, available from most stationary outlets. Black Walnut distribution: Eastern United States. Tree size 100-120 ft (30-37 m) tall, 2-3 ft (.6-1 m) trunk diameter. Color-Appearance: Heartwood can range from a lighter pale brown to a dark chocolate brown with darker brown streaks. Color can sometimes have a grey, purple, or reddish cast. Sapwood is pale yellow-gray to nearly white. Figured grain patterns such as curl, crotch, and burl are also seen. Makes great Mother's day, Graduation, Birthday, executive or 5th Wood Anniversary, teacher, Retirement or Fathers day gift. All pens are handmade by me beginning with rough cut woods for the body. The body of the pen is turned on a lathe to the final shape as seen on each pen. The body is then sanded with ten grades of micro mesh, sealed, polished and waxed to its final finish. Assembly is completed by using pre-made high quality pen components for long lasting performance.
