This is a wooden ball point pen hand turned in my own UK workshops, it has a high-quality 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 unique 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 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 is handcrafted Masur Birch. This particular wood is figured and changes as the light catch it at different angles.
I hand turned the wood to round and shape on the lathe. Once shaped and sanded the pen needs finishing with super glue for a hard and durable high gloss finish. The wood needs sealing with a durable finish not the woodturners traditional friction polish or wax as these are not durable enough for daily use. Sealing the wood will prevent the natural oils from the skin staining and discolouring this beautiful wood.
The pen uses a black Parker ball point G2 type refill. Other refills are available from my pen spares & refills or any other good stationery suppliers.
All my unique 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 pens will make great gift ideas and unique handmade wooden 5th wedding anniversary, Mother's Day, Christmas or birthday gifts.
