This handmade wooden pen is a slimline ballpoint with a high quality chrome plated trim. The pen has been hand turned by me on a woodturning lathe in my own UK workshop, only traditional lathe tools are used in the old-fashioned ways no fancy cnc so each one is slightly different although you may find it hard to notice. The wood i have used on this one is Apple which is a hard dense close-grained hardwood.
The wood is mounted on my lathe and turned too round and shaped. Once shaped it is sanded through too 400 grit and then up to 8 coatings of cyanoacrylate (superglue) are applied this is then polished too 12000 grit using Micro mesh for a super hard and durable high gloss finish. The wood needs to be sealed with a durable finish not the woodturners traditional friction polish or wax as these are not durable enough for daily use. Sealing the wood will prevent the natural oils from the skin staining and discoloring this beautiful wood.
This wooden pen uses a black cross type refill available from my pen spares & refills or any other good stationery suppliers.
All of my wood 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 pens will make unique handmade wooden 5th wedding anniversary, christmas or birthday gifts.
