A purpleheart rollerball pen hand turned by me on a woodturning lathe in my own UK workshop. With high quality chrome plated hardware to complement the bright purple. The barrels are handcrafted from a piece of expensive purple heart wood. When freshly cut, it’s naturally a purplish brown, which changes to the bright aubergine colour in 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 the appropriate size and then drilled with a correctly 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 to 12,000 grit for a high gloss, durable finish.
These Rollerballs, unlike a ballpoint, use a quality Schmidt ceramic liquid ink refill. Other refills are available from any good stationery suppliers.
Lovely to hold, they have a beautiful elegance and the best quality you can find. The smooth writing ability is fantastic; have a look around the store and see what other customers say.
All my pens come in a presentation box as our standard. Every item has a different grain pattern which makes these unique wedding and seasonal gifts for men.
