Pencil-Pal Bethlehem Olive wood is a variation of our Pencil-Pal.
We know that it is Bethlehem Olive wood but we cannot 100% guarantee the authenticity of it. There are some speculations that some of the wood actually grown in California then exported to Palestine and then exported back as various artifacts or pieces of wood. But about the olive wood characteristics in general, it is very hard and highly prized wood for its durability, colour, high combustion temperature and interesting grain patterns. Because of the commercial importance of the fruit, and the slow growth and relatively small size of the tree, olive wood and its products are relatively expensive.
We have made our Pencil-Pal as a combination of pieces of brass and Bethlehem Olive wood.
All brass parts are manually machined from solid brass with very high precision. The piece of wood was also hand made and each piece is a unique piece.
You will hardly be able to tell how the two pieces of brass and wood mate together when you invert the cap and use it. The tolerance is less then .003".
It will make a great, unique and useful gift.
Brass simply feels good and balances well in your hand. It is designed to be used on the go. There is no need for an eraser when you need to jot something down quickly. It perfectly fits into a back pocket or a valet.
