This is a beautiful handmade twist pen. The comfortable shape in the hand is complemented by the wonderful natural feel and warmth of the wood. The pen is made from Lignum Vitae with Chrome style fittings with a black enamel strip down the clip. It will be shipped in a presentation case. Lignum Vitae is regarded by most to be both the heaviest and hardest wood in the world. Its durability in submerged or ground-contact applications is also exceptional. Lignum Vitae has been used for propeller shaft bearings on ships, and its natural oils provide self-lubrication that gives the wood excellent wear resistance. The pen is complete with standard cross type refill ready for use. This pen can only be shipped within the UK. 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, polished and waxed to its final finish. Assembly is completed by using pre-made high quality pen components for long lasting performance and reliability.
