This is a streamline handcrafted wooden ink pen hand turned on an old woodturning lathe in my UK workshop. The pen has a twist mechanism with a high-quality 24ct gold plated trim. The pen barrels are hand crafted from Laburnum wood which is used in fine cabinet making and musical instruments such as the highland bagpipes.
I hand turned the wood to round and shape on the lathe. Once shaped and sanded the pen needs finishing with super glue for a 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 pick up.
This pen uses a cross type medium ball point black refill. Other refills are available from my pen spares & refills or any other good stationery suppliers.
All my unique wooden 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 great gift ideas and unique handmade wooden 5th wedding anniversary, Mother's Day, Christmas or birthday gifts.
