Sierra Style Handmade Wooden Pen-Purpleheart
Sierra Gold & Chrome Hand Made Wooden Pen
This handmade wooden pen is handcrafted in my own UK workshops on a wood turning lathe. This Serra design has a twist mechanism with a high quality chrome plated trim and gold details, the central barrel is hand turned from a piece of Purpleheart Wood.
The wood is mounted on my lathe and 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 micromesh 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 this wood ink pen over time from the natural oils and stains it will surely pick up.
This Purpleheart pen uses a Parker style G2 medium ball point black refill available from my pen spares & refills or any other good stationery suppliers.
All of my unique wooden ink pens come in a presentation box as standard. 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 wooden 5th wedding anniversary, christmas or birthday gifts.
