A Tulipwood ballpoint pen handcrafted in our Ilgai style with a high-quality gold-plated trim. The pen hand turned on a woodturning lathe in my own UK workshop. The wood I have used on this particular pen Tulipwood.
These pens are 137mm long, and unlike most of my ballpoint pens, you press the button on top of the pen for a convenient one-handed operation.
I hand turned the wood to round and shape on the lathe. Once shaped, it is sanded, finished with superglue and polished to 12000 grit using micro mesh for a hard and durable high gloss finish. All my wood pens have up to eight coatings of superglue; this finish takes time and skill to apply, hence my prices.
Other pens may have finishes such as wax or friction polish; these won’t give any long-term protection to the pen if they are even used. Natural oils from the skin will stain the pen.
This ball pen uses a black Parker type G2 refill. Other refills are available from my pen spares refills or any other good stationery suppliers.
All my pens come in a presentation box as standard. Every piece of wood different these pens make great gift ideas and unique handmade wooden 5th wedding anniversary or Mother’s Day gifts.
