This is a handmade Chatsworth style wooden fountain pen made from a whiskey cask stave, with a high quality gold-plated trim hand turned by me on a lathe in my own UK workshops. The pen barrels are hand crafted from an old oak whiskey cask ( to find out more about casks and coopers please see this cigar pen) .
This fountain pen has medium point nib and one ink cartridge to get you started straight away. The Chatsworth style is small but elegant ideal for people with smaller hands.These whiskey cask pens have a certificate of authenticity, an up graded pen box and an offcut of the original oak cask stave and as such will make ideal handmade wooden birthday or father's day presents.
Many people say fountain pens are the best fine writing instruments. With this beautiful handmade fountain pen you will have an eye-catching pen perfect for writing.
All of my wooden pens have up to eight coatings of cyanoacrylate for a high gloss hard durable finish to protect the pen, this finish takes time and skill to apply hence my prices. Other pens may have finishes such as wax or friction polish, these won't give any long-term protection to the pen if they are even being used. Natural oils from the skin will stain these other pens.
Each fountain pen comes in a presentation box as standard. As every piece of wood is different in grain and figure even within the same larger piece these unique wooden pens will make great handmade wooden 5th wedding anniversary, father's day, christmas or birthday gifts.
