A purpleheart pen hand turned by me on a wood-turning lathe in my own UK workshop. With a high-quality chrome plated trim to complement the purple wood. Purple heart wood pen barrels handcrafted from a piece of Purpleheart wood. The wood is naturally a purplish brown when freshly cut, that changes to the bright purple on contact with air. 23 species in the family group Fabaceae from central and South America, some species hold the colour better than others.
The purpleheart pen has a posted cap so can be screwed onto the end of the pen.
Purpleheart wood needs cutting to size for the pen and then drilled with an appropriately sized hole. Once mounted on the lathe then hand turned and shaped to round. The wood has up to 8 coatings of super glue applied, then sanded from 120 grit through to 12000 grit for a high gloss durable finish
This purple pen uses a quality ceramic liquid ink refill, other refills are available from any good stationery suppliers.
This purpleheart pen has a good quality and has a look of pure elegance about it. These pens give the style and originality of something handcrafted and yet have the fine writing ability of a fountain pen.
All my wooden rollerball pens come in a presentation box as standard. Every piece of wood different these pens will make unique wooden gifts for 5th wedding anniversary or Christmas gifts.
