This is a copper and wooden ball point pen hand turned in my own UK workshop on a woodturning lathe using traditional tools and techniques.
Although it is not a true segmented wood design it is segmented with cherry and copper resin inspired by this hybrid pen. This Streamline pen has a twist mechanism with high-quality 24 carat gold-plated trim to compliment the other colours.
Segmented pen designs offer endless possibilities with all the different colours and patterns.
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 from wear 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 high street stationery shop.
All my unique wooden ball point 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.
