Phoenix Ballpoint pen in Box Elder Burl blue and gold with Chrome hw

Details

This is a Phoenix ballpoint pen turned out of a Box Elder Burl blank that has been dyed blue and gold with chrome hardware. This pen looks like it is a click pen, but it is actually a single twist mechanism. It's about 5-1/2 inches long and weighs a bit less than 2 ounces.

Acer negundo is a species of maple native to North America. Box Elder, Boxelder Maple, and Maple Ash are its most common names in the United States. Burl describes a condition of wood that is knotted and contorted within the tree it is found. The burl portion of a tree is highly decorative and turns into gorgeous pens. The blank used for this pen was stabilized with a resin to make it easier to turn and dyed a two-tone color to enhance the beauty.

A bit about of the process of creating these pens: I start with a hand-selected bit of wood and the bits that make up the mechanism of the pen. I then cut the wood to length and drill holes to make room for the mechanism. I then put the blank on the lathe and spend some time working the wood to be the proper diameter to match the mechanism. Sand paper is applied, through a number of grits, to get a nice, smooth surface. Several coats of finish are applied and buffed. The wood and mechanism are then combined to create a fabulous writing instrument.

Beautiful Scott! This was purchased as a gift for myself - after all, I'm worth it! The quality of workmanship is apparent and I can guarantee this set will never leave my side. I've handwritten more letters and notes in the last four days since receiving this set then in the last year - I can't put them down. I completed a review post on my blog at http://tinyurl.com/6m85apk. Thanks again Scott! CRyan
