Glowing Embers with Chrome Rollerball Pen
Glowing Embers with Chrome Handmade Rollerball Pen
This is a hand made rollerball pen hand turned by me on a woodturning lathe in my own UK workshops.
The pen has a high-quality chrome plated trim with Grey and Brown barrels with Orange and a lot of iridescence ribbon through it. The stem is a hexagon shape and it has a nice feel to it when held.
The resin blank is cut to size for the pen and then drilled with an appropriately sized hole, this is then mounted on my lathe and turned and shaped too round. Acrylic resin blanks are hard and sometimes difficult to work with so lots of Turners avoid them. The resin is then sanded from 120 grit through to 12000 grit for a high gloss finish
This style of pen has a postable cap, meaning the cap screws on the end of the pen affecting the balance and weight if you so wish
My rollerball pens give the unique style and originality of something handmade and have the fine writing ability of a fountain pen.
The pen uses a ceramic black liquid ink refill available from any good stationery suppliers. Lamy refills also fit if that's your choice.
Every handmade pen comes in a presentation box as standard. As every hand turned pen is different with varying patterns and irradiance even within the same larger piece they will all make unique handmade Father's Day, Christmas or Birthday gifts.
