Wood Pen: Birdseye Maple and 24k Gold Slimline Twist Pen

These turned wood pens are from Birdseye Maple and 24k Gold Artisan Slimline Twist Pen parts. I tried another variation in styling that I really like on the second one - wider at the ends and tapers to the slim barrel quickly - this gives a comfortable look while retaining the slim look that makes slimline pens look so attractive.

Birdseye maple is one of the rarest woods in the world. Nobody knows for sure what makes the birdseye pattern - little dark dots of swirling grain, but whatever it is does not happen in wood very often, and when found, the wood is set apart and treated very carefully at the lumber mill because it fetches a high price. Rolls Royce uses it for dashboards of its cars, for example.

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 as shown: $27.50 (higher than my other pens from the same 24k gold parts because the birdseye maple is more expensive.) Order a matching pencil for a Pen and Pencil Set.
