Carbon fibre, a material most famous for its aerospace and automotive applications, is a sleek gift option for men or women who admire clean, technical lines, ultra-lightweight performance, and jaw-dropping aesthetics. A carbon fibre pen may be perfect for a stylish yet unique gift.

The Red carbon fibre is set in crystal clear acrylic; we hand-turn it as we do our wood pens and finish the pen to an ultra-high shine so it can be enjoyed from any angle you hold it. We have matched the carbon fibre to the highest jewellery grade Rhodium trim with Titanium accents trim and accents to produce our Grove carbon fibre ballpoint pen. We have installed an all-Swiss-made ballpoint refill with Swiss ink and Swiss components to ensure the pen delivers the best writing experience. Replacement refills are available worldwide.

If you are looking for a unique gift that will become part of its owner's life and acknowledge their creative personality, the Woodland carbon fibre pen will deliver on your expectations.

In 1860, Sir Joseph Wilson Swan used carbon fibre in the early incandescent light bulb. Using a baking process called "pyrolysis," he turned cotton or bamboo at very high temperatures into carbon to make the filament of light bulbs. When tungsten became the light bulb filament of choice in the early 1900s, carbon fibre was rendered obsolete for the next 50 years or so.
In 1958, the first petroleum-based carbon fibres were accidentally produced. In the '60s, Rolls Royce used carbon fibre in its jet engines.
Since the late 1970s, improved manufacturing processes have reduced production costs and enhanced strength and elasticity. This led engineers in the 1990s and 2000s to finally fully understand the vast potential of carbon fibre in a variety of manufacturing applications, making it a favourite design choice today. So, while not as old as the fountain pen, it is less modern than you may have thought!

As a personal, corporate or club gift, no other pen is exactly like yours!

Sustainability is high on everyone's agenda, by using one of our handmade pens and only replacing the refill you help the environment by not contributing to the BILLIONS of plastic biros that go to landfills every year.
