This is a handmade wooden cigar pen with the pen barrels hand turned in my UK workshops from a special segmented design . The pens hardware has a high quality black titanium finish normally only seen on more expensive pens.
These unusual segmented pens offer end less 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 gifts for men.
The wood is mounted on my lathe and turned too round and shaped. Once shaped it is sanded through too 400 grit and then up to 8 coatings of cyanoacrylate (superglue) are applied this is the polished too 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 woodturners 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 discoloring this beautiful wood.
This wooden pen uses a double twist mechanism and a black Parker style gel refill available from any good stationery suppliers to keep this beautiful pen in use for many years to come.
All of my wooden pens come in a presentation/gift box. As every piece of wood is different in grain and figure even within the same larger piece these hand turned pens are great gift ideas and will make lovely handmade wooden gifts for Xmas, birthdays, 5th wedding anniversary or any other special occasion.
