Ballpoint pen in Lawson Cypress from Lady Modiford's School
Quality handmade wooden ballpoint twist pen in Lawson Cypress wood from the playground of Lady Modiford's School Walkhampton. The pen pictured features Gun metal and Gold coloured fittings. One of these pens was presented to each of the children attending Lady Modiford's School by the trustees to celebrate the school's 300 year anniversary this year. These pens will be made to order. As wood is a natural product each pen will vary slightly from the one pictured.
The wood came from a tree that came down in a storm a few years ago. The tree used to stand in the grass area surrounding the playground at the rear of the school. The stump can still be seen and is used by the children during playtime.
The pens comfortable shape in the hand is complemented by the wonderful natural feel and warmth of the wood with a traditional wax finish.
The pen accepts standard Parker type refills which are widely available. It includes a medium refill with black ink. It will be shipped in the 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.
