Ancient Kauri from New Zealand is
the world's oldest workable timber!
Certified wood from the prehistoric Kauri
forests that grew 30,000-50,000 years ago!

developed for this unique material. The grain has
some iridescence, and is a warm "cognac" color.
Each wood pen includes a copy of the original certificate of

forests that grew 30,000-50,000 years ago are preserved under the
the North Island of New Zealand. These incredible trees grew for nearly
2000 years before they were buried. Some have a girth of around 40 feet,
and a total height of nearly 200

environment that has preserved the timber in perfect condition.

independent organizations that include: The University
of New Zealand in Waikato The University
