My New Wash N Write Olivewood Pens

People sometimes ask how durable the finish is on my pens, and there are many views in the penmaking world on the best pen finish. But I’ll share the following:

I inadvertently washed one of my wood pens and not only did it work just fine afterwords, but the finish still looked pretty good.  Just a quick wax coating restored a shine, which is what I recommend anyhow once a pen loses its luster–if that’s the look you prefer. Many people, however, prefer the warm, natural look of a pen that’s absorbed hand oils. Either way, my pens are more likely to be lost or stolen by an envious colleague than to wear out!  They can even take a washing (not recommended) and keep on writing!
