Quality handmade ballpoint pen handmade in milk casein. Featuring Gun metal coloured fittings which perfectly compliment the material.
Milk contains many molecules of a protein called casein.Each casein molecule is a monomer and a chain of casein monomers is a polymer.The polymer can be scooped up and molded, which is why plastic made from milk is called casein plastic.
Te pen is made from the casein which is very difficult to work with. It is prone to chipping, so a very sharp chisel and steady hand are needed .
The pen accepts standard Parker® type refills which are widely available. It will be shipped in the case pictured, along with a small certificate giving details of the casein.
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..
