Out of stock.
This is a handmade traditional style wooden fountain pen with gold plated trim hand turned on a lathe in my own UK workshops.
The pen is dressed in Zebrano wood or zebra wood so-called because of the stripes resemblance to a zebra.
All of my wooden pens are finished with up to eight coatings of cyanoacrylate for a high gloss hard durable finish to protect the pen, this finish takes time and skill to apply hence my prices. Other wood pens may have finishes such as wax or friction polish, these won't give any long-term protection to the pen if they are even being used. Natural oils from the skin will stain these other pens .
The wood is mounted on my lathe and turned too round and shaped. Once shaped it is sanded through too 400 grit and then upto 8 coatings of cyanoacrylate (superglue) are applied this is then polished too 12000 grit using Micro mesh for a super hard and durable high gloss finish.
Fountain pens are ideal as fine writing instruments and this pen is no exception with a medium point nib and supplied with an ink cartridge so you can start writing straight away. This pen range is ideal as handmade wooden gifts .
Each handmade fountain pen comes 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 will make great gift ideas and unique wooden 5th wedding anniversary, father's day, birthday or christmas gifts.
