The wood used in this pen was obtained from a local arborist when they were removing a tree. They told me the tree was a Kartha Plum but had no further information on it. When making this pen it was discovered the wood had a natural ‘Smile’ in it and this can be seen at the top of the pen. The pen has been made with gun metal coloured pen parts and has been given a hard durable finish that has been polished to a high gloss. It is a twist operated pen that utilises a ‘Cross” style refill. Light in weight but balanced and comfortable to use. This is the happy pen.
