A lovely ball point twist pen handmade in Spalted Beech with gun metal coloured fittings. I do not know the origin of this wood but sometimes the wood just has to be made use of. The wood has been stabilised to give it the strength to be used as a pen and to allow it to stand up to daily use.
The pen makes use of standard Parker type ink refills. A black refill is installed so the pen is ready to write.
The wood displays a strong unique grain pattern with the black lines a sign of the spalting process.
The pen will be shipped in the case pictured. Along with a small certificate of 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.
