All my pens are turned from pieces of the same woods that were used to make my nets, fly boxes, cigar boxes and other larger items. Sometimes the most beautiful parts of the wood are too small for these other projects, but are perfect for pens and bottle stoppers. So some of the most gorgeous wood that comes thru my shop is integrated into pens. Turning pens on my lathe is one of the most satisfying crafts I do. They are made to very specific ergonomic and structural standards and finished with a durable coating that makes them glow and last. The replacement ink cartridges are very common and easily found at many online retailers including amazon. These are heirloom quality pieces that feel amazing in your hand, glide across the page with bold ink and make meaningful, lasting gifts. I hope you enjoy these pens as much as I do!
