A slimline ballpoint pen hand turned by me on a lathe in my own UK workshop. The handcrafted pen barrels are made from an acrylic resin specifically made for pen turning, these particular ones are aqua blue with green and white ribbons.
The acrylic resin blank cut to size for the pen and then drilled with an appropriately sized hole. Then mounted it on my lathe and hand turned and shaped it too round. Resin blanks are hard and sometimes difficult to work with, so lots of turners avoid them. The resin is then sanded from 120 grit through to 12000 grit for a high gloss finish.
This aqua green pen has a high-quality chrome-plated trim with a smooth twist-action mechanism. The pen uses a cross-type black ink refill available from my pen spares & refills or any good stationery suppliers.
All my ballpoint pen gifts come in a presentation box as standard. All of my pens are different, with varying ribbons and Iridescence they will all make good gift ideas for mum’s birthday and quality handmade gifts for any other gift occasion.
