A beautiful Streamline purpleheart pen handcrafted on a wood turning lathe in my own UK workshops. The purple barrels are hand turned from a piece of Purpleheart wood. Yes, the wood is naturally this purple, with no stains, tricks or treatments used at all. Originating from central and south America, it’s brown when cut; it later becomes bright purple. Hard on tools but has a stunning finish, normally used for details, inlay and accents.
On the lathe, I manually shaped the wood pen blank to round and form. Once shaped and sanded, it needs finishing with Ca glue for a hard and durable high gloss finish.
This exotic pen has high-quality black titanium trim and uses a cross-type medium ballpoint black ink refill. Replacements are available from any good stationery supplier. The perfect size for those who like a slim and elegant writing instrument.
My ballpoints come in a presentation box as a standard. Every piece of timber different these ballpens make great gift ideas for mother’s day or unusual gifts for a birthday. Browse around the store for more unique hardwoods or see what our customers say.
Please note if the pictured product has sold, another of the same wood will be sent. With the natural nature of the material, your item may vary slightly with the grain pattern and colour.
