Limited Collector Fountain Pen, Knotty Oak Burl (383)
100% handcrafted wooden fountain pen, carved from stabilized Knotty Oak Burl wood. Creating this pen was truly a team effort, as the stabilization process - involving vacuum chambers, pressure pots, and a hardening resin called "cactus juice" - was carried out by a couple of local friends in their garage. It took several days, but the hardening processed allowed me to carve this pen without any of the knots breaking loose.

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.
