African Blackwood Cigar Pen
An African blackwood cigar pen with the barrels handcrafted in my UK workshops from a piece of African Blackwood. The wood is from Africa and comes from a small tree and is expensive and hard to get in any measure. The pen has a high-quality black chrome trim with a double twist mechanism.
These cigar pens are big and masculine and as such will make ideal handmade Birthday or Father’s Day gifts for men.
The wood is mounted on my lathe and hand turned to round and shaped. Once shaped it needs sanding through to 400 grit and then up to 8 coatings of super glue are applied this is then polished to 12000 using micro mesh for a super hard and durable high gloss finish. Other pens may only have a wax or oil finish but this is not durable enough to protect pens over time from the natural oils and stains it will pick up.
This style of pen is also available as a black acrylic pen.
This pen has a uses a Parker style G2 medium point black refill available from any good stationery suppliers.
All my pens come in a black presentation box as standard. As every piece of wood is different these hand turned pens make unique wooden 5th anniversary, Father’s Day gifts.
