A genuine Swarovski® Crystal in the pen clip. The blank for this pen is made from. The wood used for this pen is one of the rarest in the world, MALLEE BURL. The Mallee Burl that was used for this pen is made even more unique because it is two-tone as well as. 100% burl and covered with eyes. A "burl" is an abnormal growth that typically grow on the outside of the tree and usually near the tree trunk. Since each "eye" of the burl could have grown into a tree branch, this causes the grain to grow in every direction at the same time. A burl typically also has bark inclusions, voids, as well as other things making it difficult to turn. A burl also does not form on most trees so they are all very rare, yet contain the most desired wood and is worth all of the extra effort to turn, as you can see. A "stabilized" pen blank is injected with acrylic at high pressure which dramatically helps both the color and figure of the wood to POP!
This type of finish is extremely durable and will help keep your letter opener safe from water, oil and the rigors of daily use. It takes a little longer to use this finishing method, and costs a little more as well. However the finish you have on the item when completed, is very similar to an acrylic, and will last the life of the item with no problems. This particular pen is a Majestic Junior Fountain Pen and has the advantage of being larger size pen, but not so big that it's uncomfortable or heavy to hold.
An often overlooked element is how smoothly and quickly the cap attaches to the pen. The Majestic Junior has 3 separate starting points for the cap/pen to catch on.This allows for the cap to be tightened in only 1½ turns with a very smooth action. The pen cap can also be threaded on the back of the pen when not in use. Please let me know what style you are interested in and I will send you a quote and information as to which box goes best with each style pen. I have been a woodworker for over 20 years, making everything from complete custom cabinetry, to bowls, boxes, and pens on the lathe.
However, due to health issues, I now only turn projects on the lathe in order to give myself something to do for the few hours a day I can stand. When you see pens which have same name, or look the exact same, the chances are that they obtain their kits from the same sources that I use.
Since I do not need to "make a living" at this, I can offer the same product, made with great precision, and generally offer it to you for a much lower price. If you have any questions or need additional photographs, please do not hesitate to ask. The item "Stunning Fountain Pen Handmade with Mallee Burl.#102" is in sale since Thursday, March 03, 2016.
