Handmade Vertex Magnetic Rollerball pen in Masur Birch Burl
"This is a rollerball pen turned out of Masur Birch Burl with metal components in a gunmetal finish. The weight of this pen is 50 grams and is 5-3/4 inches long.
Masur Birch is not a particular species of birch, but is a grain figure that is most commonly seen in Downy Birch and Silver Birch. It comes from a region between Norway, Finland and Russia. Masur Birch in Norway has been shown to be hereditary. Regardless of the exact cause and makeup of the peculiar grain pattern, the resulting figure and appearance of burl and birdseye is unique and beautiful.
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 pen. I then spend some time working the wood to be the proper diameter to match the mechanism. Sandpaper is applied, through a number of grits, to get a nice, smooth surface. Several coats of finish are applied and buffed. The wood and metal bits are then combined into a unique item."

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
