This twist pen was created using the Executive hardware kit, which is heavily plated, painted and epoxied. This style has an elegant look and feel with a comfortable balance in hand. This wood exhibits an interesting almost “facial” feature under the clip.
Black Cherry Burl (or Choke Cherry as it is known when cut in the wild) is a domestic wood that is usually considered to be in the same class as mahogany for usage in the United States. It is described as wood for fine furniture. The stiff and strong wood is reported to work easily with both hand and machine tools. European and American black cherries are reported to be comparable in many aspects, but the latter is more plentiful. Both species are reported to be strong and tough and have been compared in strength properties to Yellow birch, and compares favorably with Teak.
Black Cherry develops a rich reddish-brown patina as it ages that’s frequently imitated with wood stains on other hardwoods
The hand selected pieces for this pen were turned by Jack D. Ciallella on a lathe. They were sanded through twelve grits of sanding until perfectly smooth. A final 10-coat finish of cyanoacrolate (”CA” Superglue) was applied, then buffed until shining beautifully. This method of finishing gives your pens the most durable exterior possible and a glisten that will last for many years.
