On offer from UK brand Hordern Richmond are beautifully finished, hand-crafted wood bodied pens constructed from decommissioned propeller blades once used on iconic WWII Supermarine Spitfire planes. The blades and therefore consequently the pens are made from Hydulignum. We know this sounds much like something you’d find on the Periodic Table of Elements however this is actually high strength birch wood laminate that’s been seasoned by tons of military flying hours and the occasional enemy bullet. Satisfying aviation and history buffs alike, or anyone like us who drool over unique and finely handcrafted stuff… each Spitfire Propeller pen comes in an equally finished ash wood presentation box with hand worked leather straps. What more could you ask for? Photos via Hordern Richmond.
