A Pau Rosa ballpoint pen handcrafted in my UK workshops from a piece of Pau Rosa. The wood varies in colour from an orange to dark red but the lighter colours will darken over time. I’m told this wood is difficult to get. The pen has a high-quality 24-carat gold-plated trim with some black detailing.
These cigar pens are big and masculine and as such will make ideal handmade Birthday or Father’s Day gifts for men.
With the wood 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. Some pens only use a wax or oil finish but this is not durable enough to protect a wooden pen over time from the natural oils and stains it will pick up.
This wooden pen has a double twist mechanism and uses a Parker style G2 medium point black refill available from my pen spares refills or any other good stationery suppliers to keep this beautiful pen in use for many years to come.
All my unique wooden pens come in a presentation box. Every piece of wood different these pens will make great wooden gifts for him on Father’s Day or Christmas gifts.
