Rollerball pen made from Kentucky bourbon barrel wood with gunmetal.


"Bourbon in Kentucky is a huge part of the culture. Knowing this, I always wanted to explore repurposing the barrels into pens. These pens are unlike any I have ever made. When turning them the woodshop gets filled with the fragrance of bourbon. It’s almost like I’m in the distillery! Our Bourbon Barrel pens now have the char section of the barrel in the pen." Ryan Jones


Roots & Jones pens are a reflective tool designed to enable connection, organization, story telling, deep focus, and authenticity. Each product is a unique wand waiting to find a partner who truly connects with it; who will use it to design their life and tell their story along the way.

Roots & Jones is founded by grandfather and grandson duo Jim Cantrell and Ryan Jones. Starting out in the old barn wood shop in the outskirts of Louisville, Kentucky an old hobby has been passed down from one generation to the next, where it is being built into something everyone in the world can appreciate.


All Roots & Jones pens come with a gift box box and a certificate of authenticity signed by the craftsman who made it.
