Handmade Cigar style gunmetal ballpoint pen in Osage Orange

Details

This is a Cigar style Ballpoint pen turned out of Osage Orange with Gunmetald hardware. It is 6 inches long and weighs about 45 grams. It uses a Parker refill. This pen has a double-twist mechanism.

This Osage Orange came from the ranch of a good friend of mine in Central Texas. All items made out of this wood make up my _Lunar Series_. Osage Orange is a tightly-grained wood that is a delight to turn.

It is a very comfortable pen for those with larger hands or for those who have trouble grasping smaller objects. It's about 11 mm in diameter where I grasp it for writing.

A bit about of the process of creating these pens: I start with a hand-selected section of wood and the components that make up the mechanism of the pen. I then cut the wood to length and drill holes to make room for the mechanism. The prepared blank is set up on my lathe, and I then spend a fair amount of time working the wood down to the proper diameter and shape to match the mechanism. Sand paper is applied, through a number of grits, to get a nice, smooth surface. Several coats of finish are applied and buffed. The wood and mechanism are then combined to create a fabulous writing instrument.

Beautiful Scott! This was purchased as a gift for myself - after all, I'm worth it! The quality of workmanship is apparent and I can guarantee this set will never leave my side. I've handwritten more letters and notes in the last four days since receiving this set then in the last year - I can't put them down. I completed a review post on my blog at http://tinyurl.com/6m85apk. Thanks again Scott! CRyan
