African Mahogany Streamline Wood Pen With Gift Box
African Mahogany Streamline Handmade Wooden Pen
African Mahogany Streamline Pen
This Streamline handmade wood pen has been hand turned on a lathe in my own UK workshop using traditional tools and techniques. The wooden pen barrels are hand crafted from African Mahogany with a high quality 24 carat gold plated trim and a twist mechanism.
The wood is mounted on my lathe and hand turned too 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 over time.
This pen uses a cross type medium 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 standard. As every piece of wood is different in grain and figure even within the same larger piece these handmade wooden pens make great gift ideas unique wooden 5th wedding anniversary, mother's day, christmas or birthday gifts.
