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. 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.
Purpleheart wood needs cutting to size for the pen and drilled with an appropriately sized hole. Once mounted on the lathe hand turned and shaped to round. The wood has up to 8 coatings of Ca glue applied, then sanded from 120 grit through to 12,000 grit for a high gloss durable finish.
This purpleheart Rollerball pen uses a quality ceramic liquid ink refill. Other refills are available from any good stationery suppliers.
This purple heart pen a good quality and 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 the standard. Every piece of wood different these pens will make unique wooden gifts for 5th wedding anniversary or Christmas gifts.
