This wooden ballpoint pen is hand crafted in a Streamline style 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 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 English Oak which grows in abundance throughout England.
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. All of my wood ball pens are finished with up to eight coatings of cyanoacrylate for a high gloss hard durable finish, this finish takes time and skill to apply hence my prices.
Other pens may have finishes such as wax or friction polish, these won't give any long-term protection to the pen if they are even being used. Natural oils from the skin will stain these pens.
This oak pen uses a cross type medium ball point black refill available from my pen spares & refills or any other good stationery suppliers.
All of my unique wooden ball 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 will make great gift ideas and unique wooden 5th wedding anniversary, mother's day, christmas or birthday gifts.
