Comfort Rollerball Pen, Brown Box Elder Burl (670)
The pen in the photos is the pen you will receive
The inspiration of the name “Elder Pens”, Box Elder is amongst the most famous and sought-after woods for pen turning. While most Box Elder wood is a dull white color, with incredibly straight and uninteresting grain, the knotted burl sections are magnificently complex. Whether harvested by me personally, or purchased from suppliers, Box Elder wood requires a process called “stabilization” to harden the wood enough to be carved. During the stabilization process, wood turners sometimes inject colorful dyes into the wood, resulting in magnificent and contrasting areas of color.

Finish: Satin – The low gloss, satin option is perfect for anyone who wants a truly authentic looking and feeling wooden pen. With the “smooth” option, any imperfections in the wood (peaks, valleys, sharp grain lines) will be cut down (through sanding from 150grit up to 12,000grit) and/or filled up (using glues and wood fillers). This process results in a very smooth and comfortable grip, while still preserving the integrity and aesthetic of minimally treated wood. Finished using Mylands Friction Polish, rated to withstand three to five years of normal use before refinishing.
