European Striped Multi Coloured Wooden Ballpoint Pen
This is a wood ball pen with a high quality gold plated trim, hand turned in my own UK workshops. The pen barrels are hand crafted from a special multi coloured ply with 5 different colours through the pen.
The wood is mounted on my lathe and hand turned to round and shaped. Once shaped it is sanded through to 400 grit and then up to 8 coatings of cyanoacrylate (superglue) are applied this is then polished to 12000 grit using micro mesh for a super hard and durable high gloss finish. Some of my competitors only use a wax or oil finish but this is not durable enough to protect wood pens over time from the natural oils and stains it will surely pick up from the skin.
This pen has a quality smooth twist mechanism and uses a black cross type refill available from my pen spares & refills or any other good stationery suppliers.
All of my unique wooden 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 hand turned wooden pens are great gift ideas and will make unique handmade wooden 5th wedding anniversary, mother's day, christmas or birthday gifts.
