A retractable Spalted beech ballpoint pen handcrafted in our Ilgai style with a high-quality gold-plated trim. This retractable ballpoint pen was hand turned on a woodturning lathe in my UK workshop. Only traditional tools are used old-fashioned, no fancy CNC, so everyone is slightly different. The wood I have used on this one is Spalted Beech.
These pens are 137mm long, and unlike most of my ballpoint pens, you press the button on top of the pen for a convenient one-handed operation. I hand turned the wood to round and shape on the lathe. Once shaped, it needs sanding and polishing for a hard, durable high gloss finish. Other pens may have finishes such as wax or friction polish; these won’t give any long-term protection to the pen if ever used.
This pen uses a black Parker ballpoint G2 type refill. Other refills are available from my pen spares refills or any other good stationery suppliers.
All my ballpoint pen gifts come in a presentation box as the standard. With every piece of wood different, these pens will make unique 5th wedding anniversary wooden gift ideas, Mother’s Day, Christmas or birthday gifts.
