Slimline Twist Pen in Cocobolo & Turquoise

$39.95

The Pen:
This classic slimline pen was created using the plated 24K gold hardware. The clip is painted black and finished in a very hard epoxy to resist scratching. This wood has a medium brown, with long, wavy stripes and occasional streaking.

The Wood:
One of today’s most prized lumbers for its outstanding color and figure; yet also one of the most infamous for its difficulty in shaping. Cocobolo can be seen in a kaleidoscope of different colors, ranging from yellow, orange, red, and shades of brown with streaks of black or purple. Sapwood is typically a very pale yellow. Colors are lighter when freshly sanded/cut, and darken with age

The Stone:
Crushed turquoise stone was inlaid and flooded with liquid glue to make it back into a solid stone. This was then finished over, making it perfectly smooth.

The Process:
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.

Sale Note:
This was one of my first dozen or so pens as a wood turner, so it's not nearly perfect. In fact, I cracked it right in half while making it! Which is why I fixed it using stone which actually makes it cooler!  The finish is not great as I trapped dust in there, but its hard to see. The tip size is a little off, but I'd rather someone have it than it sit on my shelf. Grab this cool pen as a gift or for yourself. Writes perfectly.
