Handmade Atrax Wooden Fountain Pen With Rippled Figure
Cherry Wood Fountain Pen With Rippled Figure
This handmade Atrax wooden fountain pen that has been hand turned in my UK workshops using an old-fashioned woodturning lathe. The pen has a high quality gold-plated trim with a non postable cap. The pens wooden body is made from a very highly figured rippled cherry.
The wood is mounted on my lathe and turned too round and shaped. Once shaped it is sanded through too 400 grit and then upto 8 coatings of cyanoacrylate (superglue) are applied this is then 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.
With a premium gold-plated medium point nib, the pen comes ready to use with one ink cartridge as well as a piston type pump should you wish to use your own bottled ink.
Many people say a fountain pens are the best fine writing instruments. With this beautiful fountain pen you will have an eye-catching pen perfect for writing. This can be used by men or women as it is a nice size and weight at 54g capped or 29g un-capped .
Each fountain pen comes in a presentation box as standard. As every piece of wood is different with grain and figure these unique wooden pens will make great gift ideas and unique handmade wooden 5th wedding anniversary, father's day, christmas or birthday gifts.
