Gift ideas for men: Unique fountain pen: Outdoor Spirit

When it comes to gift ideas for men, it is hard to find something unique that will be used daily. For men who enjoy writing with a fountain pen at work, but yearn to be adventuring outdoors rather than sitting at a desk, this pen with its interesting history might be the answer.

While Dave was making this gorgeous canoe, I was intrigued by the curlicues of ash shavings that he planed off while shaping the rim.

Wanting to capture some of the essence of this craft’s beauty, I collected some shavings and embedded them in a specially created resin. Then Dave made this pen.

 

A canoe - art that works

In an office setting the pen’s colours look suave: black, ivory and rufous. Outdoors they appear much wilder with the metallic black and ivory gleaming amid the wood shavings when it is turned on one side, and more black with a copper shimmer when it is turned on the other.
