Black Classic Ballpoint Pen
A black classic ballpoint pen hand turned on a lathe in my own UK workshops. A beautiful slimline twist pen design made with black Corian. Corian is a solid surface material primarily used for countertops and work surfaces though it has many other uses.
Corian is a mixture of acrylic resin and bauxite ore, very tough and cool to the touch. The resin needs cutting to size for the pen and then drilled with an appropriately sized hole. Then mounted on the lathe and hand turned, shaped to about 10mm diameter. The limitations of the material dictate the size and diameter. Corian blanks a very hard and can be difficult to work with so lots of turners avoid them. The resin then needs sanding from 120 grit through too 12000 grit for a high gloss finish
This black and gold ball pen has a high-quality gold-plated trim and it uses a black ball point cross type refill available from my pen spares & refills or any good stationery suppliers.
Every pen comes in a presentation box as standard. With every pen different with varying colours and Iridescence they all make unique handmade Mother’s day or Birthday gifts.
