A Coolabah ballpoint pen hand turned by myself in my own UK workshops. The pen has an industrial knurled pattern to both ends of the pen with a high-quality chrome-plated trim. This pen’s barrel is handmade from a wood called Coolabah.
With its sleek industrial look and clean lines, this knurled pen is a real head turner. The precision-cut knurled finish on the grip area and the end cap provides a unique feel and writing experience. Anyone who has worked in an industrial environment or used hand tools can name this knurled design. If you are looking for handmade gifts for men, I am sure anyone who uses their hands to work will love this design.
I hand turned the wood to round and shape on the lathe. Once shaped and sanded, the Coolabah ballpoint pen needs finishing with super glue for a hard and durable high gloss finish. The wood needs sealing with a durable finish, not the wood turners’ 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 black Parker medium point G2 type refill. Other refills are available from my pen spares refills or any other good stationery suppliers.
All my 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 are great gift ideas and will make unique handmade wooden 5th wedding anniversary, Mother’s Day, Christmas or birthday gifts.
