A cigar pen handcrafted in my UK workshops from a piece of Laburnum wood. Laburnum has historically been used for cabinetmaking and inlay, as well as for Highland Bagpipes. The pen’s hardware has a high-quality 24-carat gold-plated trim with some black detailing.
These cigar pens are big and masculine and as such, will make ideal handmade Birthday or Father’s Day gifts for men.
The wood mounted on my lathe and hand turned to round and shaped. Once shaped, it needs sanding through to 400 grit, and then up to 8 coatings of super glue are applied. This is then polished to 12000 using micro mesh for a super hard and durable high gloss finish. Some other pens may only have a wax or oil finish, but this is not durable enough to protect these wooden pens over time from the natural oils and stains they will pick up.
This pen has a double twist mechanism and uses a Parker style G2 medium point black refill. Replacement refills are available from any good stationery suppliers.
All my pens come in a black presentation box. With every piece of wood different, these pens will make an unusual wooden gift for a 5th anniversary or Birthday gift.
