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
