Handmade Gold Hunters Wooden Ink Pen With Oak And Gift Box
Gold Hunters Bolt Action Wooden Pen With Oak
Handmade Gold Bolt Action Wooden Pen With Oak
This handmade Hunters bolt-action wooden pen is hand turned using a piece of Oakwood in my own UK workshops on a wood turning lathe using traditional techniques and tools.
The pen is styled upon a bullet and has a high quality gold plated trim with a copper plated tip. The ball point is advanced by operating the pens bolt-action. At the top of the pen is a scoped rifle for the pen clip and a copper insert to mimic the percussion cap.
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 to 12000 grit using micro mesh 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 from wear and tear or from the natural oils and stains it will surely pick up over time.
The bolt-action pen will make lovely handmade gifts for men or women who love hunting, fishing, shooting or any of those other types of activities.
This pen uses a Parker style G2 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 wooden pens will make unique wooden 5th wedding anniversary, christmas or birthday gifts.
