Unique pens

These are unique pens – they are made from the timber with which I made the Bushfire table.

The reddish pen is from some jarrah I had left over from making the table aprons and the lighter pen is from the ribbon gum – the tree that burnt in our front yard during the 2003 Canberra Bushfires – that I used to make the table top and legs.

The fountain pen was a bit trickier – but is also made from the ribbon gum tree from the bushfire – this one I made for Sharon.

Over the years I’ve used a myriad of pens from cheap ballpoints to expensive fountain pens and although one of
the nicest “inexpensive” gel ink models I’ve come to appreciate was the Pilot Dr Grip, my only criticism was it’s
bulk. I recently bought a Uniball Premier 207 and found it to be just about the most perfect gel ink pen I’ve
come across yet. Even though they cost about the same, the Uniball Premier 207 is far better feeling than the
Pilot Dr. Grip (which uses the same refill as the G2) and is also a tad slimmer than the Dr. Grip. Writes nice
and smooth too.
