A Curly maple ballpoint pen gift set handcrafted in my UK workshops. This wooden pen and pencil set has a high-quality chrome-plated trim with a figured piece of curly maple showing lots of chatoyance. Curly Maple not a species but a description of the wood grain. The pen design tapers from either end to the 4 ring centre band with a flat on top of the pen.
The mechanical wooden pencil has a click mechanism to extend the 0.7mm lead.
The wood is mounted on my lathe and hand turned to round and shaped. Once shaped it needs sanding through to 12000 grit for a super hard and durable high gloss finish. The wood needs sealing with a durable finish, 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.
The wooden ink pen uses a black medium ballpoint cross style refill available from any good stationery suppliers.
Every ballpoint pen gift set comes in a presentation box as standard. With every piece of wood different, this pen set will make unique wooden gifts for husband or Christmas gifts for him.
