Two Tone Unusual Segmented Executive Rollerball Pen
Wooden Two-Tone Rollerball Pen
A wooden two-tone rollerball pen handcrafted by me in my UK workshops. This rollerball pen is a little special with the segmented design, although it is simple with maple and Padauk woods for contrast and effect, the pen also has a high-quality chrome plated trim to compliment the design.
The two different kinds of wood are sized to the required dimensions for the required design then glued together. Once dried and drilled for the pen tube the blank is mounted on my lathe and hand turned too round and shaped. Once shaped it is sanded through to 400 grit and then up to 8 coatings of cyanoacrylate (super glue) are applied this is the 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 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 discolouring this beautiful wood.
These fine writing pens use a quality ceramic liquid ink rollerball refill, other refills are available from any good stationery suppliers.
All my unique wooden 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 handmade wooden pens will make unique wooden 5th wedding anniversary, Christmas or Birthday gifts.
