Handmade Wooden Pen Sierra Ballpoint With American Black Walnut
Hand made American Black Walnut Sierra Pen
This handmade wooden pen is hand turned in my own UK workshops on a wood turning lathe. This is a Sierra pen with a high quality chrome plated trim and gold details, the central barrel is hand crafted from a piece of American Black Walnut Wood.
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 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 wood pens over time from the natural oils and stains it will surely pick up.
The pen uses a twist mechanism with 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 every piece of wood is different in grain and figure even within the same larger piece these hand turned pens are great gift ideas and will make unique handmade wooden 5th wedding anniversary, christmas or birthday gifts.
