Beautifully hand turned Irish Oak wood point pen with twist mechanism. Antique copper fittings have been used to show off the wood. The pen is one piece of wood with no centre band to show off the fine details in the wood. I have burned 3 rings onto the wood while turning on the lathe to give that extra bit of detail. The pictures don't do the detail in the wood justice. The pen is presented in its own box to finish the excellent presentation.
The pen is a very comfortable width for writing and takes a standard size cross refill, which is easily obtainable when necessary.
About the process
Blanks are selected from seasoned wood for their grain and colour. The wood is turned to size, sanded through 5 different grits of sandpaper. I then coat with sanding sealer to seal the woods grain before sanding this surface smooth again. Next i rub the wood with danish oil to bring out the wonderful colour before finishing off with a rubbing of wax for a great finish and protection.
Handcrafted pens make great gifts! You can give them to friends and family for their anniversary, birthday, graduation or wedding. If you like the style, but would rather have different components, or a different design in the same wood please feel free to ask.
