Ballpoint pen in Apple wood from Saltram House Plymouth

  • £22.00

Quality ballpoint pen handmade in Apple from Saltram House Plymouth. The pen features black chrome coloured fittings which perfectly contrast the wood.
This is a beautiful handmade quality pencil, 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 featured in this pen is Apple from a tree that grew at Saltram House in Plymouth. The tree was from the orchard and not all that old. It was blow over and damaged in a storm in the winter of 2016/17.

The pen accepts standard Cross® type refills which are widely available. It will be shipped in the recyclable card case pictured, along with a small certificate giving details of the wood.

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.
