Kingwood and 24k Gold Slimline Pen

This first Kingwood and 24k Gold Slimline Pen was made with the help of my son, Matt, as a gift for his teacher, Mrs. Burch. Thanks, Mrs. Burch, for taking such an active interest in my son's education, and in his social adjustment - he made leaps and bounds as he adjusted to all-day school. You know what I mean, and Liz and I are forever grateful for what you have done. The second pen is a more recent addition to my catalog, styled for comfort and elegance. Both pens are extremely comfortable to hold and write with- that's one of the advantages of a custom made pen - you can make it fit your hand instead of making your hand fit the pen.

Kingwood, also called Violetwood or Violete, is from a slender low tree native to Brazil. It is called kingwood because in the 18th and 19th century it was a favorite wood of French kings for their furniture. It is fairly rare, and its fine texture and stability makes it a prized wood for inlay work, wood turning, and fancy accessories.

The pen parts are 24k gold plated, and supplied with a Cross style refill that features a premium Swiss-made carbide writing tip for smooth, consistent writing. Price for pen shown: $25.00. Other choices of pen parts, colors, and woods are availalbe. Order a matching pencil for a Pen and Pencil Set.
