A two tone segmented wood rollerball pen handcrafted by me in my UK workshops. This wooden rollerball pen is a little special with the segmented design. Although simple with maple and Padauk woods for contrast and effect. The pen also has a high-quality chrome plated trim to compliment the design.
The two different kinds of wood sized to the required dimensions for the required design then glued together. Once dried and drilled for the pen tube the blank mounted on my lathe and hand turned too round and shaped. Once shaped it needs sanding through to 400 grit and then up to 8 coatings of super glue applied. This is then polished to 12000 grit using micro mesh for a super hard and durable high gloss finish. The wood needs to be sealed with a durable finish, not the woodturners 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.
These fine writing pens use a quality ceramic liquid ink rollerball refill, other refills are available from any good stationery suppliers.
All my wooden rollerball pens come in a presentation box as standard. As every piece of wood is different in grain and figure even within the same larger piece these pens will make unique wooden 5th wedding anniversary, Christmas or Birthday gifts.
