The details

Handmade near Chicago, the Aficionado part of Allegory's Original Collection. The Aficionado is a Parker-style retractable ballpoint pen made with reclaimed picklewood redwood and ancient Bethlehem olivewood.

About Picklewood Redwood: Prior to the onset and broad adoption of refrigeration technology, food preservation was a much more complex task. Pickling was a primary method of food preservation and a lifeline for many homes. Large amounts of lumber were required to construct pickling vats. Today these vats are no longer necessary in such quantity, and they provide an excellent source of reclaimed lumber. The compounds used in the pickling process add beautiful character to the wood.

About Bethlehem Olivewood: Throughout Israel there are olive groves that have grown for over 2,000 years. These trees saw Rome come to the area, and eventually fall. They saw much of Biblical history unfold; and they still stand today to bear witness to the trials faced by the region. These trees are highly protected, those who maintain them gather branch trimmings and deadfall and make them available to tourists and woodworkers. The dense, high contrast grain of Bethlehem Olivewood makes it ideal for small woodworking applications, its beauty and history are equally incredible.
