Handmade Wooden Pen and Pencil Set Santos Rosewood
Handmade Santos Rosewood Wooden Desk Set
These are a handmade European style wooden pen set hand turned by me on a woodturning lathe in my own UK workshops. The pens both have high-quality gold-plated trim handcrafted from Santos Rosewood.
The mechanical pencil has a twist mechanism to extend and retract the 0.7mm lead.
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 super glue are applied this is then polished to 12000 grit using micro mesh for a super hard and durable high gloss finish. Some of my competitors only use a wax or oil finish but this is not durable enough to protect wooden pens over time from the natural oils and stains it will pick up over time.
The wooden ballpoint pen uses a black cross type medium point refill available from my pen spares & refills or any other good stationery suppliers.
All my wood pen sets 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 executive desk sets are great gift ideas and will make unique wooden 5th wedding anniversary, Father's Day, Christmas or Birthday gifts.
