For all of the lovers of beautiful exotic woods, I created this pen…named the “Burl Wood Classic Writer”. I used exotic Mallee Burl wood (from Australia) to make the “front end” section of the pen (the part where the flange attaches, aka the “foot” of the pen). Mallee Burl is an extremely hard and durable wood, and this is a splendid example of highly figured Mallee Burl. For the ornate handle stem, I used a select piece of Cocobolo wood. Cocobolo is a beautiful exotic wood, and this piece is an exceptionally fine quality selection. I inlaid a pretty red pearly/sparkly stripe or “band” between the two woods for added visual interest and classiness. This pen is extremely well made (as are all of my custom calligraphy pens). Superior craftsmanship and attention to detail are of supreme importance to me and will be evident as soon as you see the pen in person and take it into your hands to write. Fit and finish are peerless. This pen is well balanced and will fit the hand like a glove. You will not be disappointed in any way.
This is a handcrafted pro-caliber calligraphy pen that will easily handle the demands of the pro calligrapher/penman.
And of course I equipped this pen with 14 coats of my multi-layer clear finish…a hand applied hardshell clear that is meticulously and carefully polished to a glassy luster. A finish so durable that it will never become sticky or gummy (as often happens with spray-on finishes). It is soo tough, in fact, that if ink dries on the pen, you can simply scrape it off with your fingernail.
