A ballpoint Kingwood pen with high-quality black titanium and platinum-plated trim and a piece of Kingwood for the main pen sections. In the 17th Century, they knew it as princes’ wood as it was used for expensive furniture. This figured wood is dense and hard but has a spectacular finish to it. It can be difficult to work with, but I have overcome the difficulties in working with it, and I feel this has the WOW factor with all the bling.
Mounting the wood on the lathe, hand turning to round and shape. Once shaped it needs sanding through to 400 grit and then up to 8 coatings of super glue applied. Then polished to 12000 grit using micro mesh for a super hard and durable high gloss finish.
The wood needs sealing with a durable finish, not the woodturners’ 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 from staining and discolouring this beautiful wood.
These pens are big and masculine and will make ideal handmade gifts for men.
The ball pen uses a double twist mechanism and a Parker-style G2 medium ballpoint black refill available from any good stationery supplier.
All my pens come in a presentation box as a standard. With every piece of wood different, these pens make unique handmade wooden 5th anniversary, Father’s Day, Christmas or Birthday gifts.

What can I say, I cant really pick up any down points of the pen I received. I don’t think there is any difference between a 200-300 big branded pen and this lovely cigar pen.However, If you could put a certificate showing the pen is handmade/turned by yourself would be better for customers, as we are looking for the unique pen with elegance and affordable price.
