A Masur Birch wooden ball-point pen with polished high-quality chrome trim with gold details. Handcrafted in my UK workshops on a wood-turning lathe with traditional tools and techniques.
This pen barrel hand-turned from a unique piece of Masur Birch. A lovely piece of wood with lots of figure and some chatoyance, normally found as a veneer on high-quality furniture.
With the wood mounted on the lathe, 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 applying. 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 staining and discolouring this beautiful wood.
This pen uses a Parker style G2 medium ballpoint black refill available from my pen spares refills or any other good stationery suppliers.
Any of these pens are lovely gift ideas for people who love writing or appreciate woodworking crafts.
All my wooden ball pens come in a presentation box as the standard. Every piece of wood different these wooden ballpoint pens make unusual wooden gifts for him at Christmas.
Please note if the pictured pen has sold another of the same wood will be sent. With the natural nature of the material, your item may differ slightly with the grain pattern and colour.
