with a walnut skin!
That’s right, a skin for your everyday disposable pen – not so everyday anymore!
Genuine walnut burl from California – a cousin to the first 30 days project entry a mere 18 days ago – finished with, you guessed it walnut oil – to bring out the best in the swirly burly grain – and friction polished to help it outlast dozens of refills. Yes you can swap out a new insert (nicked from a Bic Crystal pen) when it finally runs dry, but at $1 or 2 for a pack of ten this is a fancy pen with a thrify side.
but now what to do with all those old clear plastic pen tubes? Lousy straw with a hole in the side… no teachers to shoot spitballs at….
