A Zebrano wood ball point pen with a smooth twist mechanism, polished high-quality chrome and gold trim. All pens hand turned in my Northampton UK workshop on an old wood-turning lathe.
A pen barrel hand turned from a piece of Zebrano wood, so called because of the brown stripes running through it.
The wood is mounted on my lathe and turned to round and shaped. Once shaped, it needs sanding through to 400 grit and then up to 8 coatings of super glue are applying. This then needs polishing 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 for daily use. Sealing the wood will prevent the natural oils from the skin staining and discolouring this beautiful wood.
This wood ball 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 unique wooden pens come in a presentation box as standard. As every piece of wood is different in grain and figure even within the same larger piece, these pens will make great gift ideas and unique handmade wooden 5th wedding anniversary, Christmas or birthday gifts.
