Indigenous to Australia, Mallee burl wood has long been prized for its unique combination of figure and color. Whereas many notable burl species are light colored, and subsequently dyed to achieve dark colors, Mallee grows red in its natural form. This wood is hard to come by, so don’t miss an opportunity to own this gorgeous writing instrument!
Model: 30 Caliber Bolt-Action
Pen Type: Ballpoint
Ink Color: Black
Wood: Mallee Burl
Fixtures: Gun Metal, Copper, Brass
Finish: Satin – The low gloss, satin option is perfect for anyone who wants a truly authentic looking and feeling wooden pen. Any natural imperfections in the wood are removed through sanding and filling, resulting in a smooth and comfortable grip, while preserving the integrity and aesthetic of minimally treated wood. These pens are sealed using a durable friction polish, rated to withstand three to five years of normal use before refinishing.
I’m proud to offer custom laser engraving as an option for every pen in the shop. Engraving costs an addition $5 per item, and may delay shipping by a single day.
Laser engraving involves burning an image or text into the wood body of the pen. This process produces a black engraving. Naturally, a black engraving appears differently on light versus dark colored woods. As a general rule, lighter woods produce more brilliant and contrasting engravings than darker ones. Red, orange, yellow, white and light brown woods all engrave very clearly. Purple, dark brown, and black woods tend not to produce clear engravings, therefore I usually discourage the purchase of engraving for such woods.
