Individual handmade pens by Mike Topp.
No two pens are the same. They are unique! When you buy a The Forest At Your Fingertips handmade pen, you select an individual pen from those currently offered for sale. The handmade pen in the photograph is the one you will receive, unless you commission your own design. They are usually available in gold plated, silver plated, copper plated, and gunmetal plated. Whilst I usually keep a wide selection of handmade pens & pencils in stock. I do take orders for custom handmade pens and pencils.
I gave Mike a fairly generic brief by asking him to create a pen with a Japanese theme for a school teacher. With the simplest of briefs Mike was enthusiastic and committed to making sure the pen was perfect and that we were happy. I am pleased to report that with Mikes creative flair, undoubted talent and commitment to customer service, the pen we have received has exceeded all expectations. It is utterly perfect in every way, aesthetically, practically and personally. It will be treasured for a long, long time. Thanks Mike. ***** 5 Stars (Can`t recommend enough) Thanks Jon.
Mike Topp began wood turning as a hobby over over 15 years ago when working as a Design & Technology teacher. Now retired from full time employment he makes high quality handmade pens and other writing instruments from wood and acrylic materials. Mike sells his handmade pens through this website and by recommendation. Writing instruments can be made to commission, contact through the contact page to discuss options.
Mike uses many types of wood in his work ranging from locally sourced material to exotic tropical timbers like Kingwood, Cocobolo and Rosewood. All of his timber supplies are obtained from FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) accredited sources or are reclaimed. He has even used Damson, Apple and Cherry Laurel from his garden. The metal components he uses are of the highest quality and plated with a variety of finishes including titanium, platinum, gunmetal and gold. Many of the parts are imported from specialist suppliers from as far away as USA and Australia to ensure that each writing instrument is truly individual.
