Description

After millennia of timber cutting, Scottish forests now exist only as scattered pockets which are now rightly protected. These include Scots Pine trees which are magnificent ancient specimens several hundreds of years old. As a result of geographical isolation it has now evolved into a distinct local subspecies, Pinus sylvestris var. scotia and is known as the Caledonian Pine.

The wood of these ancients is beautiful. Very slowly grown with close growth rings, the colour is a lovely yellow-orange with fine dark orange-brown growth rings. The smell is something amazing, an almost overpowering heady pine resin scent that fills the air in the workshop.

As mentioned above, Caledonian Pines are now protected. This pen is made from wood taken from a huge specimen that was around 250 years old at Glemoriston in the Scottish Highlands not far from Loch Ness. It had to be officially removed under licence as it was presenting a danger to an adjacent road.

It is of great scarcity because of its history and it’s protection, and I only have 5 pieces of wood (I’m trying get another 5 to create a second batch) so this pen will come with a numbered certificate.

It’s in art deco / Celtic style and finished in antique rose copper, and handcrafted into a unique one-off pen – no two pens are the same. It takes a Parker type refill and comes with a free velvet pouch of your choice.

Buy now as this will be unlikely to be repeated quickly!
