Slimline Wood Twist Pen - Olive and Gold Titanium

This Artisan Slimline Twist Pen is made form Olive wood and Gold Titanium. Titanium is the most durable of the pen finishes available. Gold titanium is shown here. The pen parts have a lifetime guarantee.

Olive wood is a sentimental choice for a pen. Some olive trees have been alive since the time of Christ. A long-lived gnarled tree with a short bole, often with numerous holes and cavities, olive wood is one of the world's most beautiful woods. Heartwood is light brown to dark brown with irregular streaks of grey, brown, and black, giving a marble-like appearance. Irregular, interlocked grain is dense, turns easily and cuts very clean. These aromatic blanks are selected for figure and color. And aromatic isn't putting it mildly - when cut, this wood smells very strongly of opened green olives and olive oil - I guess that shouldn't be a surprise.
Price for this pen: $35.00
