For that special gift that keeps on giving, check out my Bethlehem Olivewood Pen/Pencil set. The wood comes from Israel and is certified to come from non-fruit bearing trees. The grain is spectacular and makes a beautiful writing instrument. I have Bethlehem Olivewood cases as well and together make a wonderful present. The pen uses standard Cross refills and the pencil uses common .7mm leads.
The picture shown has 24k gold trim but doesn’t show it off well. I feel the 24k gold, Rhodium, or Brushed Satin trims would be the best choices, but I can make it using Black Titanium or Black Enamel as well. There are no stains or varnishes used on any of my creations, unless specifically mentioned. This is all natural woods and at least two coatings of wood polish give the luster to this beautiful wood. Like I have said, these pen/pencils are custom made, and usually available within a week of ordering. I do work a full time job but have my weekends off to be creative.
Of course, this wood is a bit more pricey but well worth it at $60 for the set and the case is an additional $25. I do charge an additional $7.50 for USPS Priority Shipping/handling if you need the set mailed. If local, we can make arrangements for delivery/pick-up.
