Handmade Maple Burl Pen - Blue & Gold


This is a hand-made pen with a body made of Burl Maple with gold colored trim. The wooden body was hand-turned to fit comfortably in the hand, then treated with linseed oil and a transparent blue stain. Finally the body is then sealed with a cyanoacrylate finish and polished to 12000 grit and waxed with beeswax. The result is a wood that shines in the right lighting. The figuring of the maple will reflect and scatter natural light in a way like no other I’ve found.
The pen is a twist-style ballpoint which takes cross-style refills. These refills are available at several retailers but within Ottawa one of the easier sources is Lee Valley in the west-end. Product number for the refills is: 88K7856
