This is a streamline handmade wooden ink pen hand turned my me 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 traditionally used in fine cabinet making and musical instruments such as the highland bagpipes.
The wood is mounted on my lathe and 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 too 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 ink pens from wear over time from the natural oils and stains it will surely pick up over time.
This 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 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.
