This handmade wooden pen is based on a twist slimline and is customized by me to eliminate the centre band for a long sleek look with high quality 24 carat gold plated trim.
The wood used is a piece of lightly spalted apple wood. This would make a perfect gift for those who like gardening or the outdoors.
The wood is mounted on the lathe and turned and shaped, then sanded to 400 grit. Once sanded up to eight coats of cyanoacrylate (superglue) are applied then this is polished to 12000 grit yes really 12000 for a durable high gloss finish.
This wooden pen uses a black cross type refill available from my pen spares & refills or any other good stationery suppliers.
All of my wood ink pens come in a presentation box as standard. As every piece of wood is different in grain and figure even within the same larger piece these handmade wooden pens make great gift ideas and unique wooden 5th wedding anniversary, mother's day, christmas or birthday gifts.
