This Streamline wooden ball pen has been hand turned on a lathe in my own UK workshop using traditional tools and techniques. The pen barrels are hand crafted from Lime with a high quality chrome plated trim with a twist mechanism.
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.
This lime 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 wooden ball 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 wooden ball pens will make great gift ideas and unique handmade wooden 5th wedding anniversary, mother's day, christmas or birthday gifts.
