Handcrafted Classic Sculptured Purpleheart Wooden Pen & Letter Opener with Leather Case
The pen and letter opener were hand turned on my lathe.
Purpleheart is an exotic wood with mechanical properties of the wood are reported to lie somewhere between those of Greenheart and Oak. It is reported to have exceptional tolerance for shock loading. Purpleheart is reported to be highly desired by hobbyists and craftsmen who use the hard heavy wood in small projects.
The pen has a twist mechanism to extend and retract the writing tip. The mechanism is activate by turning the top barrel. You will note that the twist mechanism operates smoothly. The pen comes with a standard Parker-type ink in black.
This is a pen to be seen and to be appreciated. I can’t imagine the purchaser of this pen not being proud to own this pen and also show this pen to co-workers and family. Writing with this pen is extremely smooth and the barrels are a marvel to be appreciated.
Remember there is only one of this pen and there will only be one of this pen making it a unique pen. No two pieces are the same. Each will have different grain patterns and colors. If you enjoy pens that are unique, this is a pen for you.
The pen is finished with multiple coats of a CA finish, which gives it a durable gloss coat that will resist oils and signs of wear.
