This is a handmade wooden pen hand turned in my own UK workshops, it has a gun-metal finish to the pens trim along with a smooth twist mechanism that operates from the top of the pen.
With its sleek industrial look and clean lines the GT is a real head turner. The precision cut knurled finish on the grip area and the end cap of the pen provides a lovely feel and writing experience. Any one who has worked in an industrial environment or used hand tools will be able to identify this knurled design. If you are looking for handmade gifts for him i am sure anyone who uses their hands to work will love this design.
All of our wood pens are unique due to the grain and the figure of the woods. No two pens will ever be the same. This pen's barrel are made from a wood called Masur Birch. This particular wood is highly figured and changes as the light catches it at different angles.
The wood is mounted on my lathe and turned too round and shaped. Once shaped it is sanded through too 400 grit and then up to 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
The pen uses a black Parker type refill available from my pen spares & refills or any other good stationery suppliers.
All of my unique wooden 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 pens will make great gift ideas and lovely unique handmade wooden 5th wedding anniversary, mother's day, christmas or birthday gifts.
