Handcrafted wooden pen – Iroko, Venezuela, Silver, Fountain ink

£650.00

The Iroko tree is a large hardwood tree that grows in the tropics of Africa, particularly on the west coast in countries like Ghana, Guinea, Angola, Benin and Mozambique. While it’s also sometimes known as Nigerian or African Teak, the Iroko tree is not in the teak family. In fact, the timber actually compares very favourably to teak, making it an increasingly popular and more affordable alternative.

The strength, durability and rot resistance of Iroko timber give it a number of potential applications, ranging from construction, furniture and joinery to panelling, boat building and flooring. Iroko wood was also chosen for the pews in the Our Lady of Peace Basilica. Iroko can also be used in herbal medicine, with the bark milled down and used to treat coughs and even heart problems, while the latex can clear stomach and throat obstructions.

The tree grows to an average of 50 metres (164 feet) and has a diameter of 75 – 250 cm. But, as well as being a vertiginous tree, the Iroko is also surrounded by a number of tall tales, myths and folklore. In fact, the tree is both feared and revered in various cultures.

Handcrafted wooden pen – Mahogany, Brazil, Black, fountain ink

£600.00

Mahogany is native to the Caribbean and Central and South American lowland tropical or subtropical forests where rainfall averages between 1 and 2.5 meters. It was used to patch ship planks for Hernando Cortez in 1514. From the beginning, Mahogany study and harvesting has been a long and difficult battle with the trackless tropical wilderness. The visual beauty on the face of genuine Mahogany became a tradition, and so for most people, it is the most familiar characteristic of the wood. Mahogany is less liable to warping, shrinking, swelling, and twisting than other woods. This is because of its unusual resistance to moisture and atmospheric changes. Mahogany does not move – it holds its shape. Because of the size of the Mahogany tree, it produces incredibly clear large pieces.

Handcrafted wooden pen – Platanus, London, United Kingdom, Gold, Fountain Ink

£500.00

As a tree Plane, or London Plane, is unusual. Not especially common, but where it grows, it reaches incredible sizes. Often found in parks and estates as specimen trees you’d know them immediately by their bark.

The Plane timber is unusual too. Fresh sawn it has an amazing colouration of pinks and peaches. As it dries it calms down and becomes more milky brown with a hint of pink but it displays an extraordinary laced grain pattern. Within the grain, you often see little hooks and pip like patterns too as the trees often suffer from epicormic growth or burrs. No one can accuse Plane of being plain!
