This wooden ballpoint pen is hand crafted on a lathe in my own Northampton UK workshops using only traditional tools and techniques. The pen is hand turned in a European style and has a high-quality chrome plated trim. The pen barrels are hand crafted from a small figured piece of Curly Maple.
The wood is mounted on my lathe and hand turned to round and shape. 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.
This curly maple pen uses a black cross type medium ball point refill available from my pen spares & refills or any other good stationery suppliers.
All my unique wooden ball 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 wooden pens will make great gift ideas and will make unique handmade wooden 5th wedding anniversary, Mother's Day, Christmas or Birthday gifts.
