This creation was made as a special commission. The wood used is Lilac from a tree in my garden which needed severe pruning. Lilac is usually quite pale resembling a fine grained Ash. However this piece had several knots in it which although made turning rather tricky it had given a very interesting grain pattern similar to ‘Birdseye’ Maple. The fittings were selected based on the need for a light weight slim shape, but still looking unusual with the wavy clip and spherical button on top. The metal fittings have a polished gold finish to add to the distinctive modern design.
A blue gel Parker type refill is fitted as standard, but can easy be changed by carefully unscrewing the tip from the body. This standard refill can be purchased at most stationary stores.
