This Streamline wooden ballpoint 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 Olive Ash with a high quality 24 carat gold plated trim with a smooth twist mechanism. On top of the Pen is a soft touch stylus which is suitable for use with touch screen tablets and phones, i have tested this on android devices and it is really useful. Replacement tips are available from me if you need them.
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 olive ash 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 ballpoint 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.
