Wood Pen: Osage Orange and 24K Gold Artisan Slimline Twist Pen

This wood pen from Osage Orange and 24K Gold Artisan Slimline Twist Pen components is in a class of its own. I have another pen from the same kind of wood and parts below, but I posted this one because I thought the form was so original - I looked all over the internet at weird and not-so-weird pens, and didn't see any like this. The thing is, as different as it is shaped, it feels GREAT to hold and write with - the tapers fit your natural grip very nicely. And it looks slim and elegant and unique.

The Osage Orange tree grows in the American Midwest, and was prized by the plains Native Americans for its worth as a bow wood. Its hard, straight grain made bows of such quality that Native Americans would travel for a week to harvest the wood. In the early 19th century, you could trade a horse for a Osage Orange bow. The wood's color is a vivid yellow-orange, and it turns smooth and hard.

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: $25.00 Order a matching pencil for a Pen and Pencil Set.
