Handcrafted Wooden Pen - El Grande Roller Ball Pen in Exotic Lignum Vitae Argentine with a Durable Bright Platinum Finish
My handcrafted El Grande wooden Fountain Pen in exotic Lignum Vitae Argentine is trimmed in a durable bright Platinum finish. This pen is very highly detailed and looks spectacular in this traditional pen style. The pen is from my El Grande pen line, and is one of the largest pens I make. The roller ball writes extremely smooth and the pen is a pleasure to write with and has a great hand feel and balance designed into it.
My pens are great for personal use or as an exquisite gift for that special someone, birthday, wedding, anniversary, client, guest, holiday, etc. A presentation box is included.
Known as the Tree of Life, Lignum Vitae is impossible to obtain any longer. Lignum Vitae Argentine is an exotic wood related to Lignum Vitae, and is native to the West Indies and the tropical regions of the Americas. It is a very hard, dense, and heavy wood, with a fine texture. It has an oily to waxy character and takes a high polish. The wood color ranges from a greenish brown to green and black. Lignum Vitae is excellent for wood turnings, even though it takes a toll on the tooling edges. I had a couple of different pieces around the shop and crafted them into this pen. The cap shows the lighter to darker colors with green in it. The barrel has a dark brown color with distinct patterns. This pen is a little different from one of my standard pens. I think it looks great! This wood will darken and become greener upon exposure to sunlight.
All my pens are turned by me on my lathe and undergo an 18 step finishing and polishing process to bring out the fantastic colors embedded within the wood and highlight the grain.
Custom Handcrafted Pens make great gifts!
I do not use inferior woods, acrylic formulations or pen mechanisms in any of my pens or pencils!
This handmade pen is a higher end fountain pen trimmed in durable bright Platinum plated finish and uses a Schmidt style of roller ball refill. Refills are readily available at stationery stores everywhere (or through my website). This is a highly polished and exquisite pen and requires little maintenance to retain its luster.
Lignum Vitae Argentine will naturally darken over time to show that well used, trusty old pen.
