Handmade Wooden Pen Cigar Style With Pau Rosa Wood
Pau Rosa Cigar Pen
This handmade wooden cigar pen is hand crafted in my UK workshops from a piece of Pau Rosa. The wood vary's in colour from an orange to dark red but the lighter colours will darken over time, I'm told this wood is difficult to get. The pen 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 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. 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 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 my unique wooden pens come in a presentation box. As every piece of wood is different in grain and figure even within the same larger piece these hand turned wooden pens are great gift ideas and will make unique handmade wooden 5th anniversary, Father's Day, Christmas or Birthday gifts.
