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 highly figured piece of Curly Maple.
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 Micro mesh for a super hard and durable high gloss finish.
This curly maple pen uses a black cross type refill available from my pen spares & refills or any other good stationery suppliers.
All of 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.
