  • Briar is a deciduous shrub from the heath tree family known as Erica arborea of Mediterranean coastal origin. Clumps of the burl from the shrub that are between 25-100 years old (mainly for making pipes) are used for the pens. The material is subjected to a period of sandblasting (shell) before a hard abrasive cleanser is injected at high pressure. When applied to the surface, the relatively soft part of the wood is removed and the grain of the hard part of the wood comes through clearly. It is then wiped with lacquer to tone down the shininess. By doing so, the beauty of the grain begins to stand out with the lacquer increasing the durability of the wood surface. This pen carries a natural warmth to it that ensures users can enjoy it for a long time irrespective of trends.
