A beautiful ballpoint pen in African mahogany hand-turned in my own UK workshop. The handcrafted African Mahogany wood barrels have a high quality 24 carat gold-plated trim and a twist mechanism. This Streamline design tapers from either end to the centre with a four-ring centre band. A detailed pocket clip lead leads to a flat top.
This handcrafted wooden ballpoint twist pen uses a medium cross-type black ink refill. Other refills are widely available from any good stationery supplier. The item you get may vary in colour and grain orientation, measuring 133 mm and weighing 23 g.
I hand turned the wood blank to round and shape on the lathe. Once shaped and sanded, the pen needs finishing with super glue for a hard and durable high gloss finish. The woodturners’ traditional wax finish will not seal and protect this exotic hardwood long-term.
A black presentation box is included with each purchase as a standard. Each piece of natural wood makes these writing instruments unique gifts for any occasion.
