Holly is one of the whitest woods known, and is sometimes used as an ivory substitute for that reason.

Holly Pen Blank

100% of 100

Holly's snow white color makes it perfect for decorative and ornamental items such as pen turnings. Due to its nearly invisible grain, it is occasionally used as a stand-in for ivory, and, ironically, also used for the black keys on a piano as a substitute for ebony. This is because it accepts stains and dyes very evenly, an attribute that may be used to good advantage for those wanting to experiment with different finishes.

Good Recommendation
Nice wood, great color.
Tom at the store in Portland Maine was right it does remind me of ivory, great recommendation.

It looks like ivory!
I bought this on the recommendation of the young gentleman at tickler in Orland Park, IL. It cut, drilled and turned with relative ease. I put this in a cigar/Cuban kit with a black finish. All I can say is it didn’t disappoint!

plain white but looks good as a pen
wanted something other than the usual orange/browns of most types of pen blanks. turned well and looks sharp with shell-a-wax finish.

This will not be for a pen. I plan on carving a small spoon for pepper for a birthday gift.
