This Apple wood Slimline twist pen is a ballpoint with a high-quality chrome-plated trim. The pen hand turned on a woodturning lathe in my own UK workshop, only traditional lathe tools used in the old-fashioned ways no fancy CNC so each one is slightly different although you may find it hard to notice. The wood I have used on this one is Apple, a hard dense close-grained hardwood.
With the wood hand turned and shaped it needs sanding through too 400 grit. Up to 8 coatings of super glue need applying then polished to 12000 grit. The wood needs sealing 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.
This pen uses a black cross type refill available from my pen spares & refills or any other good stationery suppliers.
All of my pen gifts come in a presentation box as standard. Every piece of wood different in grain and figure these hand turned pens make unique handmade wooden 5th wedding anniversary gifts or Christmas gifts.
