This equestrian theme pen has been made at the request of a client. Wavy grain Sweet Chestnut wood has been used as it represents the wavy mane and tail of the horse. Chestnut also being a recognised colour for a horse or pony. I had an idea to combine a band of Ash at the grip end of the main body to represent the colour of the hoof and then as I was turning the laminated blank on the lathe I tried to create a representation of the lower front leg of the pony…… A polished Chrome clip complete with horses head was used too……..What a stunning pen!
The pen is constructed first by hand selecting each piece and then turning the pen to final shape. A finish is then applied and the pen is then sanded 7 times with progressively finer grits (180, 220, 320, 400, 600, 800, 1200) of sandpaper to create a very smooth surface. The surface is polished to a mirror like shine using 7 polishing steps to create a showroom quality finish.
All external components are finished with a polished Chrome finish which will provide durable and dependable service. The ball point pen extends with the twist of your wrist and and writes smoothly and easily.
This twist action ballpoint pen is very stylish and shows well in all lighting conditions. The pen will make a memorable gift for any occasion, such as a Birthday, Father’s Day, Christmas, or Graduation.
Comes with a black ink cartridge and a velvet pen sleeve. Replacement Parker type ink cartridges can be easily found at most stationers. You’ll also receive a Certificate of Authenticity with each pen ordered. Product dimensions are the size of the pen inside its box.
