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.
Ilgai Click Pens
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.
