With its elegant profile, superb balance, and smooth action, the Sierra Pen has earned its place as a favorite among pen turners. It’s a single twist pen – one turn of the barrel exposes the ballpoint tip. This pen takes standard Parker ballpoint pen refills.

Each piece of wood is a cut-off from a larger block of wood. Then, the pieces are individually sanded, shaped, then glued and clamped together. The new "block" is sanded down into a rectangle with rounded edges, then drilled and ready to turn. This green method of using small, but beautiful wood scraps helps save exotic trees and eliminate waste.
The hand selected materials for this item were first cut and drilled, then turned on a lathe by me, Jack. Sanding is completed through several grits until the piece is smooth to the touch. Next, up to 10 finish coats of cyanoacrolate (”CA” Superglue) are applied by hand, one at a time. The finish is buffed with a series of micromesh pads, then shined with polishing compound until the surface has a glass-like appearance. A final rub on the buffing wheel adds depth and final clarity.
This method, the most difficult and intensive technique, provides your purchase with the most durable exterior possible, and a beautifully reflective surface that resists the elements and will last for many years.
The majority of this item was made, assembled and finished by hand.
