Red Ivory Wood Streamline Pen (with copper inlay)
This Streamline Style Pen is uniquely handcrafted from Red ivory wood with a copper inlay. It takes a Cross type refill.
Each of our pens are totally unique and meticulously handcrafted to enhance and preserve the natural beauty of the wood, turning it into a little “monument” of what was once a living tree. Only sustainable resources are utilized, usually dead trees, firewood or old fence poles. The variety of wood and even the direction the wood is cut, is chosen specifically to bring out the beauty of the wood, enhanced even further through very careful and fine finishing” – WOW – Admiring and preserving the “Wonder Of Wood
Red (pink) ivory (Berchemia zeyheri) wood is rare and very valuable wood that has a fine grain and a characteristic colour. It is the royal tree of the Zulu nation and only chiefs were allowed to carry knob-kerries (a stick with a rounded knob on one end) made from it. The wood used here was bought in Swaziland, sold as firewood.
