This is a handmade wooden cigar pen with the pen barrels hand crafted in my UK workshops from a special segmented design. The pens hardware has a high-quality black titanium trim only seen on far more expensive pens.
These unusual segmented pens offer endless design possibilities with lots of different patterns and colours, just have a look through the shop or gallery. These cigar pens are big and masculine and as such will make ideal handmade Father's Day or Birthday gifts for men.
The wood is mounted on my lathe and hand turned to round and shaped. Once shaped it is sanded through to 400 grit and then up to 8 coatings of super glue are applied this is then polished to 12000 grit using micro mesh for a super hard and durable high gloss finish. The wood needs to be sealed with a durable finish, not the wood turners traditional friction polish or wax as these are not durable enough for daily use. Sealing the wood will prevent the natural oils from the skin staining and discolouring this beautiful wood.
This pen has a double twist mechanism and uses a Parker style G2 medium ball point black gel refill available from my pen spares & refills or any other good stationery suppliers to keep this beautiful pen in use for many years to come.
All my unique wooden ink pens come in a presentation box. As every piece of wood is different in grain and figure even within the same larger piece these hand turned pens will make unique handmade wooden 5th anniversary, Father's Day, Christmas or Birthday gift ideas.
