This Rollerball has been hand crafted in my own UK workshops. The pen has a high-quality chrome plated trim with black details and non-postable cap. This is a big pen, the sort of thing to use while writing cheques and making a statement. The pen barrels are hand turned from an unusual segmented herringbone design.
Time-consuming to create every piece needs gluing to make the design before this even gets near the lathe. With the blank on my lathe and turned too round and shaped. The wood pen needs finishing with super glue for a hard and durable high gloss finish.. The wood needs sealing with a durable finish, not the wood turners 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 design.
These fine writing pens use a premium ceramic roller ball liquid ink refill, other refills are available from any good stationery suppliers.
This pen is of a good quality and has a look of pure elegance about it. These Rollerballs give the style and originality of something handcrafted and yet have the smooth writing ability of a fountain pen.
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 hand turned wooden pens will make great gift ideas and unique handmade wooden 5th wedding anniversary, Father's Day, Christmas or Birthday gifts.
