Wood Pen Cigar Style with Laburnum Wood & Gift Box
Handmade Wooden Pen Cigar Style with Laburnum Wood
Handmade Laburnum Wood Cigar Pen
This pen is handcrafted in my UK workshops from a piece of Laburnum wood. Laburnum has historically been used for cabinet making and inlay, as well as for musical instruments, it was a popular wood for Highland bagpipes. The pens hardware has a high-quality 24-carat gold-plated trim with some black detailing.
These cigar pens are big and masculine and as such will make ideal handmade Birthday or Father's Day gifts for men.
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.
This wood pen has a double twist mechanism and uses a Parker style G2 medium point black refill available from my pen spares & refills or any other good stationery suppliers to keep this beautiful pen in use for many years to come.
All of my unique wooden ink pens come in a black presentation box. As every piece of wood is different in grain and figure even from within the same larger piece these hand turned pens will make great gift ideas and unique wooden 5th anniversary, Christmas or Birthday gifts.
