This is a handmade wooden pen hand crafted on a wood-turning lathe in my own UK workshops. The pen has a high quality gold plated trim and striped multi coloured wooden ply barrels with five different colours in the design.
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.
Any of these pens are lovely presents for people who love writing or appreciate the woodworking crafts.
This pen uses a cross type medium ball point black refill available from my pen spares & refills or any good stationery suppliers.
All of my unique wooden pens come in a black presentation box. As every piece of wood is different in grain and figure even from within the same larger piece these hand turned pens will make great gift ideas and unique wooden 5th wedding anniversary, mother's day, christmas or birthday gifts.
