Let the Words Flow

Novelist William Faulkner declared that, "Civilization begins with distillation," while George Bernard Shaw liked to think that, "whiskey is liquid sunshine."

Distill some of that creative spirit into your own writing with this intoxicating pen. A handsome writing tool for any connoisseur of American whiskey, the wooden barrel of this pen is crafted from white oak barrel staves that once held Jack Daniels™ whiskey as it aged. Anna Ruggiero is a master wood turner, and her pens have a luster and heft that will be savored for years to come. Pen is finished with black chrome hardware and a Parker™ ballpoint insert. Metal components made in China. Pen turned and assembled in Charleston, South Carolina.

Notes
Care instructions: This pen takes a Parker style refill (includes one with each pen) available at any office supply store. To change the refill, pull the pen apart, unscrew the mechanism and remove the refill. Place the spring over the nose of the new refill, replace the refill and screw the mechanism back on to the pen, replace the back half of the pen- it will be a tight fit.

Anna Ruggiero

"One of the things I enjoy most about woodturning is starting with a simple piece of wood, then forming it into something beautiful and useful. Often the wood itself dictates the form it becomes." Anna Ruggiero always enjoyed working with her hands, but it wasn't until 2007 when she inherited her grandfather's 1948 Shop Smith that she was first introduced to woodturning. After taking a class at a local woodworking store she was offered a teaching position less than a year later. Quickly transforming her passion into her profession!

Anna is currently a member of the American Association of Woodturners and the International Association of Penturners.
