This is a Streamline hand turned wooden pen with a segmented design. All of my pens are hand turned in my UK workshops using traditional tools and techniques.
These segmented designs offer end less 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 ct 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.
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 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 these pens over time from the natural oils and stains it will surely pick up.
All of my unique wooden ball 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 ball pens will make lovely gift ideas and unique handmade wooden 5th wedding anniversary, mother's day, christmas or birthday gifts.
