A Mexican Kingwood pen with a high-quality chrome and gold trim hand turned in my own UK workshops.
The pen barrel hand turned from a piece of Mexican kingwood whose name comes from several French kings (Louis XIV and Louis Xv) who preferred the wood in the use of fine furniture.
The wood mounted on my lathe and turned to round and shaped. Once shaped it needs sanding through to 400 grit then up finishing with 8 coatings of super glue. Then polished to 12000 grit using micro mesh for a super hard and durable high gloss finish. 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 Parker style G2 medium ballpoint black refill available from my pen spares refills or any other good stationery suppliers.
All of my handmade wooden pens come in a presentation box. Every piece of wood different in grain and figure these pens make great gift ideas and unique wooden 5th wedding anniversary or Birthday gifts.
