"Straight from the Barrel" is a handcrafted pen and box set that is made from a stave of a red wine barrel. I wish I could bottle the aroma of the wood as I was creating this unique work of art. The pen and box are made in my shop located in Atlanta, GA. The pen components are also made in the U.S. and are solid stainless steel polished to a brilliant finish. The writing mechanism is a German made Schmidt 5888 rollerball, one of the smoothest writing refills in the pen industry. This unique pen and box set will add a touch of class to any desk but will be especially cherished by the wine enthusiast.
Every wooden piece in the pen and box is one from the stave. The underside of the box is stained in rich deep red from years of being in contact with the red wine. The transition from the inside of the barrel to the outside unstained surface can be seen along the front edge of the box. Although finished to an ultra-smooth surface, the top and sides of the box still hold the scars of the exterior of the oak barrel as it was handled during the wine making process.
