Island Pen

This is a very unique pen, actually.  In fact you'll find that this little item will be the first thing that a Boundary Waters explorer will pack.

Beneath the coarse exterior of driftwood, however, is beautiful nicely grained hardwood.  The sample shown in this picture is made from popple, a wood seldom believed to be valuable but one that turns very nicely on the lathes of our journey craftsmen.

The Island Pen comes engraved with the Boundary Waters logo, the islands and canoeists.  The price of the Boundary Waters pens are $19.95 each and they may also be personalized with an individual's name added on the clip end for an additional $5.
