Handmade Wooden Pen-European Ballpoint Pen With Olivewood
Handcrafted Wooden Olivewood Pen
This European handmade wooden pen is hand crafted in my own UK workshops with a smooth twist mechanism and a high quality 24 carat gold plated trim. The wood is Olivewood, unfortunately I don't have any certificates from the holy land for this. The wood is from natural trimming and maintenance, a very light brown colour with dark veins this is a very highly figured and beautiful.
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 cyanoacrylate (superglue) are applied this is then polished to 12000 grit using micro mesh for a super hard and durable high gloss finish.
This pen uses a cross type medium ball point black refill available from my pen spares & refills or any good stationery suppliers.
All of my unique wooden pens come with a free presentation box. As every piece of wood is different in grain and figure even within the same larger piece these hand turned pens will make unique wooden 5th wedding anniversary, mother's day, christmas or birthday gifts.
