Handmade Cigar Pen With African Blackwood And Gift Box
Handmade Wooden Pen Cigar Style With African Blackwood
African Blackwood Cigar Pen
This is a handmade wooden cigar pen with the barrels hand crafted in my UK workshops from a piece of African Blackwood. The wood is from Africa and comes from a small tree and is expensive and hard to get in any measure. The pen has a high-quality black chrome trim.
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 needs sanding through to 400 grit and then up to 8 coatings of super glue are applied this is then polished to 12000 using micro mesh for a super hard and durable high gloss finish. Other pen may only have 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 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.
All my wooden pens come in a black presentation box as standard. 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, Father's Day, Christmas or Birthday gifts.
