With its elegant profile, superb balance, and smooth action, the Manhattan 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. The Manhattan Ballpoint Pen takes standard Parker ballpoint pen refills.
This pen has a dark, rich brown side and a light, yellow side divided vertically by a dark black stripe. Truly a beauty! Black and Chrome Finish accents natural wood colors.
Color can be highly varied, ranging from reddish/orange to a dark violet/brown, usually with contrasting darker black streaks. Narrow sapwood is a pale yellow and is clearly demarcated from the heartwood.
The hand selected pieces for this pen were turned by Jack D. Ciallella on a lathe. They were sanded through several grits of sandpaper until perfectly smooth. A 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.
The majority of this item was made, assembled and finished by hand.
Natural materials and individual artists means a truly one-of-a-kind work of art.
