A Curly-maple pen pencil set handcrafted in my UK workshops. This pen and pencil gift set has a high-quality chrome-plated trim with a figured piece of curly maple showing lots of chatoyance. Curly Maple is not a species but a description of the wood grain. The pen design tapers from either end to the 4 ring centre band with a flat on top of the pen.
The mechanical wooden pencil has a click mechanism to extend the 0.7mm lead.
I mount the wood on my lathe, and hand turn too round and shaped. Once shaped, it needs sanding through to 12000 grit for a super hard and durable high gloss finish. The wood needs sealing with a durable finish, 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.
The wooden ink pen uses a black medium ballpoint cross style refill from any good stationery supplier.
Every ballpoint pen gift set comes in a presentation box as the standard. With every piece of wood different, this pen set will make unique wooden gifts for your husband or Christmas gifts for him.
