A Sierra pen handcrafted in my own UK workshops with traditional tools and techniques. This twist ballpoint pen has a smooth twist mechanism with a high-quality chrome-plated trim and gold details. The central barrel hand turned from a piece of Purpleheart Wood, this is the natural colour. Normally used for woodturning, detailed inlay work and furniture details.
With the wood mounted on the lathe and turned to round and shaped. Once shaped, it needs sanding through to 400 grit and then up to 8 coatings of super glue for finishing, then polished to 12000 grit using micro mesh for a super hard and durable high gloss finish. Some pens only use a wax or oil finish, but this is not durable enough to protect these handmade wooden pens over time from the natural oils and stains they will pick up.
This pen uses a Parker style G2 medium ballpoint black ink refill available from my pen spares & refills or any other good stationery suppliers.
All of my gift pens for her come in a black presentation box as a standard. As every piece of wood is different in grain and figure even within the same larger piece, this handmade wooden pen will make good 5th wedding anniversary wooden gift ideas or mother’s day gifts.
