Select Extra Cross™ Style Ball Point Refills

This Cross® Style Twist Pens refined design makes it an exceptionally popular gift that never goes out of style.

The pen is turned wider than the standard Slimline Pen.  The upper barrel is longer and it does not have a separate center band which gives this pen a unique look and feel.  You will love the way this pen feels in your hand as you are writing. 

The Bamboo
is turned on a lathe, sanded and finished with four coats of polish, all by hand.  This creates a beautiful shine that brings out the natural beauty of the wood.   

It is a water proof, high gloss finish that is non-toxic and non-flammable after drying.  Over time, the oils from your hand will enhance the finish and the wood may darken.
 
No duplicating equipment is used in my work, therefore, even with like woods, no two Pens will be identical.  This Pen is truly one of a kind.

Bamboo (Poaceae):    Bamboo, in the true grass family, is one of the fastest growing plants on Earth with reported growth rate of 100 cm (39 in) in 24 hours.  However, the growth rate is dependent on local soil and climatic conditions as well as species, and a more typical growth rate for many commonly cultivated bamboos in temperate climates is in the range of 3-10 cm (1-4 inches) per day during the growing period.  Primarily growing in regions of warmer climates  during the late Cretaceous period, fast fields existed in what is now Asia.  Some of the largest timber bamboo can grow over 30 meters (98ft) tall, and be as large as 15-20 cm (6-8 inches) in diameter.  However, the size range for mature bamboo is species dependent, with the smallest bamboos reaching only several inches high at maturity.  A typical height range that would cover many of the common bamboos grown in the United States is 15-40 feet, depending on species.  Unlike trees, individual bamboo culms emerge from the ground at their full diameter and grow to their full height in a single growing season of 3-4 months. During these several months, each new shoot grows vertically into a culm with no branching out until the majority of the mature height is reached . Then the branches extend from the nodes and leafing out occurs.  In the next year, the pulpy wall of each culm or stem hardens.  During the third year, the culm hardens further.  The shoot is now considered a fully mature culm.
