This is a handcrafted wooden ballpoint pen hand turned by myself on a lathe in my own UK workshop, it has a knurled high quality chrome plated trim along with a twist mechanism at the top of the pen to extend and retract the ball point.
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 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 men i am sure anyone who uses their hands to work will love this design.
All of our wooden ball 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 genuine Indian Rosewood.
The wood is mounted on my lathe and turned too round and shaped. Once shaped it is sanded through too 400 grit and then upto 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
This wooden ball pen uses a black Parker type G2 refill available from my pen spares & refills or any good stationery suppliers.
All of my unique wooden ballpoint 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 pens will make great gift ideas and unique handmade wooden 5th wedding anniversary, father's day, christmas or birthday gifts.
