Ballpoint pen in Sycamore wood from Saltram House Plymouth
Quality handmade wooden ballpoint twist pen handmade in Sycamore wood from Saltram House Plymouth. The pen features gold coloured fittings which perfectly compliment the wood. This is a beautiful handmade quality 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 featured in this pen is Sycamore from the multi stem Sycamore tree that grows in the car park area of Saltram House in Plymouth. A single trunk had to be removed over the summer for safety reasons. The tree has been a focal point of children's play for several generations.
The pen accepts standard cross type refills which are widely available. 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.
