Robert: Antique Copper/Bocote
The Robert Pen is simply gorgeous. Featuring a replica of a tooled leather boot on top of the clip, interlocking horseshoes around the centre band for luck and sheriff stars as a nod to the sheriffs of yesteryear, the symbolism of cowboys and the Wild West is captured in this design.
As each of our pens are custom made from a range of stunning timbers, each piece is genuinely one of a kind. Originating in Mexico and Central/South America, Bocote is primarily used in fine furniture, cabinetry, flooring, veneer, boat building, musical instruments, gunstocks, turned objects, and other small specialty wood items. It has a yellowish brown body with dramatic dark brown to almost black stripes. Its colour also tends to darken with age. The grain patterning can be quite striking, particularly on flatsawn areas. It’s not uncommon to see many “eyes” and other figuring in Bocote. It is a gorgeous timber that we source sustainably from fine furniture offcuts and wastage.
Beautifully presented in a deluxe leather pen case, our hand crafted pieces are built to last and make individual, meaningful gifts for birthdays, anniversaries, events or that special someone. You could even consider this beautifully crafted pen for your next ‘thank you’ gift or as a gorgeous keepsake for special events.
