This is a designer ballpoint pen hand turned in my own UK workshops using traditional hand tools and techniques. This beautiful pen has a high quality rhodium trim to compliment the morado (purple) colours. Rhodium is normally seen on far more expensive pens, very similar in looks to chrome but far more durable.
The resin blank is cut to size for the pen and then drilled with an appropriate sized hole, this is then mounted on my lathe and turned and shaped too round. Resin blanks are very hard and can be difficult to work with so lots of turners avoid them. The resin is then sanded from 120 grit through too 12000 grit for a high gloss finish
This designer ballpoint pen operates with a twist mechanism and uses a Parker G2 type black ink refill available from my pen spares & refills or any other good stationery suppliers.
Every pen comes in a presentation box as standard. As every hand turned pen is unique with varying ribbons and irradiance they will all make great gift ideas and unique handmade mothers day, birthday or christmas gifts.
