Redwood Burl Pen

$60

An elegant hand turned pen made from Redwood Burl featuring a deep rich highly figured grain pattern.

Native to Northern California and Oregon, the Redwood is the tallest tree in the world, and they have been known to live over 2,000 years.  The average Redwood Burl can weigh between 10,000-20,000 pounds.  Some have been known to weigh as much as 100,000 pounds.

Burls are the rarest and most beautiful part of a tree. They are formed when a tree undergoes some form of stress such as an injury, virus or fungus. Most burls grow beneath the ground, attached to the roots. Others are attached to the trunk of the tree and look like an ugly growth or knot. Burls are ugly on the outside, but simply amazing on the inside.  The wood is composed of stunning swirls of grain with small eyes from branches that have grown from the burl.  This is why a hand turned pen made from this beautiful wood is simply incredible.
