This is a red lattice handmade ballpoint pen made by me on a woodturning lathe in my own UK workshop. The pen has gold plated trim and a smoother twist mechanism than my slimline/streamline range, with a red resin and small ribbons of white for the pen barrels.
The resin blank is cut to size for the pen and then drilled with an appropriate sized hole, this is then mounted on my lathe and turned and shaped too round. Resin blanks are very hard and can be difficult to work with so lots of turners avoid them. The resin is then sanded from 120 grit through too 12000 grit for a high gloss finish
The pen uses a cross ball type black refill available from my pen spares & refills or any good stationery suppliers.
Every handmade ball pen comes in a presentation box as standard. As all my hand turned pens are unique with varying ribbons and irradiance they will all make unique handmade mother's day, christmas or birthday gifts.
