A graphite rollerball pen hand turned by me on a woodturning lathe in my own UK workshops. The pen has a high-quality chrome-plated trim with Grey and Brown barrels with Orange and a lot of iridescence ribbon through it.
The resin blank is cut to size for the pen and then drilled with an appropriately sized hole. This is then mounted on my lathe and turned and shaped too round. Acrylic resin blanks are hard and sometimes difficult to work with so lots of Turners avoid them. The resin is then sanded from 120 grit to 12000 grit for a high gloss finish.
This pen design has a postable cap, meaning the cap screws on the end of the pen affecting the balance and weight if you so wish. My rollerball pens give the unique style and originality of something handmade and have the fine writing ability of a fountain pen. The quality rollerball pen uses a ceramic black liquid ink refill from any good stationery suppliers. Lamy refills also fit if that’s your choice.
All fountain, ballpoint and rollerball pens come in a presentation box as standard. As every pen is different with varying patterns and irradiance, even within the same larger piece, they will all make unique handmade gifts for him on his birthday or Christmas gifts.
