A slimline pen hand turned on a lathe in my own UK workshops. A beautiful black ball pen handcrafted with a Corian. Corian is a solid surface material primarily used for countertops and work surfaces, though it has many other uses.
Corian a mixture of acrylic resin and bauxite ore, tough and cool to the touch. The resin needs cutting to size for the pen design and then drilled with an appropriately sized hole. Then mounted on the lathe and hand-turned, shaped to about 10mm diameter. The limitations of the material dictate the size and diameter. Corian blanks are very hard and can be difficult to work with, so lots of turners avoid them. The resin then needs sanding from 120 grit to 12000 grit for a high gloss finish.
This pen has a high-quality gold-plated trim with a black ink cross-type medium refill available from my pen spares & refills or any good stationery suppliers.
Every pen gift comes in a presentation box as a standard. With every pen slightly different through the handcrafted process, they all make quality handmade gifts for any gift occasion.
