This is a wooden ball pen hand crafted by me in a streamline style on a woodturning lathe in my own UK workshop.
The pen barrels are made from a piece of Spalted Beech wood, the wood is called Spalted because of the figure caused by the fungi that has been at work on the wood. Spalted woods are highly sought after by woodworkers for the unique figure and character.
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 micromesh for a super hard and durable high gloss finish.
This pen has a high quality 24 carat gold plated trim and uses a cross type medium ball point black refill available from my pen spares & refills or any other good stationery suppliers.
All of my wooden ball 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 ball pens make great gift ideas and unique handmade wooden 5th wedding anniversary, mother's day, christmas or birthday gifts.
