A beautiful dyed red maple wood burl pen with gold twist-top, clip, and nib.
Handmade pens are a perfect gift for him, her, college students, nurses, doctors, bosses and more! Ideal stocking stuffers or specialty gifts for Christmas, Birthdays and for anyone who loves to journal and write.
Handcrafted with dyed wood for an extra beautiful and one of a kind look.
A beautiful grain pattern and dyed with red pigment to accentuate the grains and inclusions.
It feels great in the hand and with the smooth operating twist-top, the ink retracts and extends easily and the parker-style ink is ultra-smooth writing, too.
All pens are hand-turned in my woodshop in New Hampshire.
The wood is cut into blocks, dyed and stabilized in a pressure pot before being trimmed further into a rectangle block approximately the size of the pen barrel.
Once cut to a rectangle, the wood is then put on my lathe where I drill a hole down the center of the block to accept a brass tube for the pen fittings.
The brass tube is adhered inside the wood and the wood is then trimmed at each end to match flush with the brass tube.
After the wood and tube are flush at each end, the pen is then hand-turned on the lathe.
Spinning at 3500 RPMs, the wood block is cut with chisels and shaped to a comfortable size for writing.
After cutting the wood with chisels to the cylindrical shape, the wood is sanded.
A hard, durable finish is applied and then sanded again through 15,000 grit and polished to a beautiful shine.
The pens are some-what hard to photograph because they shine so nicely so the color may be a slightly different when you see it in person, but I’m sure you’ll absolutely love your new pen.
Each pen is one of a kind and ready for gifting upon arrival.
All pens come with a pen box for easy gifting.
This pen comes with a Parker-style ink refill, and more refills are available at all box stores that sell ink refills.
