Newest Creation - from 1000 Year Old Wood

Irish Bog Oak is the result of trees and forests that have become buried in the boglands of Ireland for centuries. The lack of oxygen in the bogs prevents the decay of these woods and preserved these trees for thousands of years. Carbon dating has shown some samples to be up to 7,000 years old. An anaerobic reaction within the bog turns the usually light wood of oak to a deep black. The longer the time spent in the bog, the darker the wood has become.

This pen is a deep black colour throughout. There is just something about a black pen that shouts Class!

This pen is from my Niagara line, and while similar in appearance to the Baron, it is in fact larger, and has all metal hardware. The larger size really shows off the Irish Bog Oak on this pen, while maintaining a nice balance in the hand while writing. This Niagara Pen features Titanium Gold hardware for a lifetime of brilliance, and a German made Rollerball insert for smooth writing performance.

The Niagara line comes packaged in a hinged Leatherette display and presentation box.

This pen is FOR SALE -- $150.00 Contact me using the ABOUT ME on the right hand side of this page if you are interested.

Canadian Pen

This is not just another Baron 2 Piece Pen! This pen features a red-orange-white swirling custom made resin body from Master Scroll Saw worker Jeff Powell. This magnificent Maple Leaf blank has been hand cut by Jeff Powell, and cast in his own blend of special resins.

The chrome Baron sets this special body off perfectly giving a wonderful 2 piece design and flawless writing from the German rollerball ink insert. When the pen is in use, the cap is screwed onto the bottom of the pen to keep a wonderfully balanced writing instrument, and gives you the chance to continue to show off your Canadian Pride!

This pen is SOLD, and the hand scroll sawed bodies made by Jeff Powell were a limited edition, but I can take an order for one more at $100. Contact me using the ABOUT ME on the right hand side of this page if you would like one made especially for you!

An Arrow Pen

I was on the lookout for new pen ideas, something that you just don't see everyday. While shopping in my local outdoor shop, I noticed that the arrows in the display case seemed to be just about the right size for some experimentation.

This pen was the result ... completely fun, but functional, and actually a nice balance in the hand!

The feathers actually fall between your finger and thumb to create a very comfortable grip, while maintaining a very unique pen.

This pen is the shaft and flights from an Easton XX75 21117 arrow.

This pen is FOR SALE -- $30.00 Contact me using the ABOUT ME on the right hand side of this page.
