Ballpoint twist pen handmade in Ash grown at Cotehele estate, completed with gun metal coloured fittings. This is a beautiful quality handmade pen. The comfortable shape in the hand is complemented by the wonderful natural feel and warmth of the wood with a traditional wax finish. The wood in the pen has been dyed to give the unique striking appearance.
The pen accepts standard Cross® type refills which are widely available. It includes a high quality refill with black ink. It will be shipped in the case pictured, along with a small certificate giving details of the wood.
Cotehele was the ancestral home to the Edgcumbe family for centuries. The Tudor house, perched high above the River Tamar, is decorated with tapestries, arms and armour, pewter, brass and old oak furniture.
All pens are handmade by me beginning with rough cut woods for the body. The body of the pen is turned on a lathe to the final shape as seen on each pen. The body is then sanded, sealed, waxed and polished to its final finish. Assembly is completed by using pre-made high quality pen components for long lasting performance.
