This is a Streamline hand turned wooden ballpoint pen with a segmented design. All my pens are hand turned in my UK workshops using traditional tools and techniques.
These segmented designs offer endless design possibilities with lots of different patterns and colours, just have a look through the shop or gallery.
This pen has a twist mechanism with a high-quality 24 carat gold-plated trim. The pen uses a cross type medium ball point black refill available from my pen spares & refills or any other good high street stationery shop.
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 these pens over time from the natural oils and stains it will pick up.
All my unique wooden ball point pens come in a presentation box as standard. As every piece of timber is different in grain and figure even within the same larger piece these hand turned wooden ball point pens will make great gift ideas and unique handmade wooden 5th wedding anniversary, Mother's Day, Christmas or Birthday gifts.
