Sierra Pen With Polished Chrome & Zebrano With Gift Box
Sierra Wooden Pen - Zebrano Wood
Sierra Zebrano Wooden Ballpoint Pen
This is a handcrafted sierra wooden ballpoint pen with a smooth twist mechanism and polished high quality chrome and gold trim, hand turned in my own Northampton UK workshop on an old wood turning lathe.
This pen barrel has been hand turned from a piece of Zebrano wood, so called because of the brown stripes running through it.
The wood is mounted on my lathe and turned to round and shaped. Once shaped it is sanded through to 400 grit and then up to 8 coatings of cyanoacrylate (superglue) are applied this is then polished to 12000 grit using micromesh for a super hard and durable high gloss finish. The wood needs to be sealed with a durable finish not the wood turners 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 discoloring this beautiful wood.
This wood ball pen uses a Parker style G2 medium ball point black refill available from my pen spares & refills or any other good stationery suppliers.
All of 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 ball pens will make great gift ideas and unique handmade wooden 5th wedding anniversary, christmas or birthday gifts.
