Spalted Maple and 24k Gold Slimline Pen

This Spalted Maple and 24k Gold Slimline Pen was made with the help of my son Tyler for a gift for his teacher, Mrs. Handy. Thanks, Mrs. Handy, for taking such an interest in our son's education and in keeping him challenged and interested in school!

The Sugar Maple produces sweet sap used to make maple syrup. Its wood is hard, and a creamy white to reddish brown color, and produces a sweet smell when cut or sanded. Spalted maple is maple wood with dark veins caused by a pattern of white fungus rot in the wood. It can be deliberately cultured in the wood by keeping the uncut wood at or near room temperature and moist for several months. Once stabilized, this wood is very decorative as it often looks like a pen and ink drawing through the wood, and is a favorite for fine woodwork and woodturning.

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. The pen has a great feel in your hand - balanced and solid

Price: $25 as shown. Other woods and pen kits are available. Order a matching pencil for a Pen and Pencil Set.
