At Thornbush Pens we try to minimize our impact on the environment by using many materials that are renewable resources. We also make pens and gifts from a variety of materials other than wood, such as acrylic, deer antler, and recycled newsprint. Our products are sanded to a very fine finish so that they are extremely smooth to the touch. Each and every one of our handturned items are crafted to be of the highest quality so that they will last more than a lifetime!
Thornbush Pens products come with an informative description card, perfect for gift giving or for your own knowledge.

Additional coats of olive oil can be applied at any time, particularly when the wood begins to look dry.Simply rub a generous amount of oil onto the wood with a soft, lint free cloth and allow to absorb.Use a dry soft cloth to remove any excess oil.
