Elder Pens Wooden Pen by David Dolifka

Collector Rollerball Pen, Exotic Box Elder Burl (290)

Regular price $199.99 Sale

I searched long and hard for the Box Elder Burl in this pen. Each year, we mill hundreds of Box Elder logs from local fallen trees and scour the listings of burl vendors searching for the best products. This exotic box elder burl is the finest specimen Elder Pens has to offer. Only one available. 

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.

As a luxury writing instrument, this pen is built to last. The components feature real rhodium plating for a durable shine that will never wear or dull. Each pen is protected by the most-durable, high-gloss cyanoacrylate finish.

Finish: Gloss – The crystal-clear gloss finish holds several distinct advantages over the satin finish. It is much more durable, and will never need refinishing. It provides a clearer, better lens for light-colored woods and layered woods of contrasting colors. For intricate designs with inlay or small pieces, the gloss coating acts as a barrier to prevent small parts from separating. The “smooth” option guarantees an ultra smooth finish, achieved by a two-stage finishing process with cyanoacrylate, sanded to 12,000 grit, then waxed and polished.
