I take custom orders.  If you do not see what you are are looking for, message me to have a pen, or any other item, custom made.
 

The 24kt gold uses a "premium rack plating" process and is covered with an epoxy coating for extreme durability.  Its beauty and durability has a lifetime guarantee or your money back.

Bradford Pear

(Pyrus calleryana) The Bradford Pear is a cultivated variety of the Callery Pear. Unlike most other pear trees this form is grown mainly for its ornamental features. The showy, white flowers appear during spring growth, often before the leaves. In contrast to their appearance, however, the flowers have an unpleasant odor. In autumn the leaves turn bright red to dark red before falling. The fruits are small and round, less than 1 inch in diameter, hardly resembling the traditional pear in appearance. While on a tree they are hardly visible, being hidden by leaves. The Bradford Pear is very disease resistant, making it useful as a street tree. But the relatively short life span (about 25 to 30 years) makes it necessary to replace individuals more frequently than with most other street or screen trees.

Pear wood (of any species) has one of the finest textures of the fruitwoods. It is prized for making woodwind instruments, and pear veneer is used in fine furniture. Callery (Bradford) pear has been used as rootstock for grafting such pear cultivars as Comice, Bosc, or Seckel, (European Pears) and especially for Nashi (Chinese) pear. Pyrus calleryana was first introduced into the United States (in 1909 and 1916) for agricultural experimentation, pre-dating the recognition of the potential value appreciation of the species as an ornamental plant in the 1950s.
