PENS BELOW ARE ALL NOW SOLD


#161 Abbotswood - Caragana (Saskatchewan)

A particularly good looking pen with a "coffee and cream" appearance. Satin oil varnish finish.
Caragana is also known as "Siberian Pea". It was introduced into Canada by early settlers, as the pea pod-like seeds of the tree are edible. This particular piece of wood is from Saskatchewan. (I only have wood for two pens, which came from a contact in Canada. This is one of them)  

SOLD

#162 - Abbotswood - Manitoba Maple (Saskatchewan)

A beautiful pen in a lovely blonde coloured wood with pink streaks in the grain, and an irridescent sheen when you turn it against the light.

SOLD


#163 - Abbotswood - Ropola

The pen made from this fascinating  rare tropical wood displays a "lacewood" pattern on each side, and a distictive "totem pole" appearance on the front and back. The story behind this wood is that I visited a luthier friend one day, and he had an offcut from an instrument that he had made. My eyes lit up when I saw it, as I knew that it would make a stunning pen. Somewhere around, there is a tenor ukulele made from the same piece of wood!

Oil varnish finish with a satin sheen.  

SOLD


#164 - Abbotswood - Russian Olive

Called "Russian Olive" because of the wood's similarity in appearance to that of an olive tree. A blonde colour with brown lines, making a really attractive pen. This wood came from a friend in Canada, where a large tree blew down in a storm in his son's back yard.

Natural oil varnish satin sheen finish

SOLD


#165 - Abbotswood - Paper Birch

The native indians of Saskatchewan used the wood from this particular type of birch to make canoes. Later after Canada had been settled, people used it to make paper, and hence its name. It s a really fine grained hard wood with an even pale blonde coloured grain. Ideal for pen making.

Gloss finish  

SOLD



#178 - Abbotswood with Cross Clip and Round Top - Masur Birch

Masur Birch pen by Rodney Neep

An Abbotswood variant, with a gold plated cross on a ball end clip, plus a round end finial.
The Masur Birch is stunning! Blonde, superb in pattern, and a bonus is that it is irridescent as it is turned in the light, and parts of the wood appear to move and change colour. This is a very rare and expensive wood indeed.

NOT FOR SALE !
