This handmade rollerball pen has been turned by me on a woodworking lathe in my own UK workshop. The pen has a high quality chrome plating with black details to the pens hardware. The pen barrels are turned from a piece of acrylic caste specifically for pen turning, this particular one is styled on a singapore sling cocktail with pink, purple and lilac colours.
It has a postable cap so can be screwed on to the end with a little extra detail in the cap. A small piece of acrylic is set in the end cap to match the rest of the acrylic pen.
The acrylic blank is cut to size for the pen and then drilled with an appropriate sized hole, this is then mounted on my lathe and turned and shaped too round. Acrylic resin can be very hard and difficult to work with so lots of turners avoid them. The acrylic is then sanded from 120 grit through too 12000 grit for a high gloss finish
This pink pen uses a quality ceramic liquid ink refill, other refills are readily available from any good stationery suppliers.
This beautiful pen is of a lovely quality and has a look of pure elegance about it.My handmade rollerball pens give the unique style and originality of something handmade and yet have the fine writing ability of a fountain pen.
Every handmade pen comes in a presentation box as standard. As every handmade pen is different with varying patterns and irradiance even within the same larger piece they will all make unique handmade mothers day, christmas or birthday gifts.
