The Pen:
This is truly the gift your recipient can’t put down! With it’s sleek, faceted Chrome plated design and easy to make single tube fountain pen construction, this pen is a winner. But what makes this pen truly mesmerizing is it’s unique magnetic cap. The cap easily posts magnetically onto the nib and back of the pen without the use of threads. Long single tube design allows you to really show off your turning craftsmanship. Includes a premium Iridium nib.

The Material:
Unlike most other hardwoods, the sapwood of Hard Maple lumber is most commonly used rather than its heartwood. Sapwood color ranges from nearly white, to an off-white cream color, sometimes with a reddish or golden hue. The heartwood tends to be a darker reddish brown. Birdseye Maple is a figure found most commonly in Hard Maple, though it’s also found less frequently in other species. Hard Maple can also be seen with curly or quilted grain patterns.

Includes:
Vertex Fountain Pen
(4) Ink Cartridges

Black Velvet Pen Box

The Process:
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.

Dying:
This wood was first heavily dyed in under pressure with blues, then blacks to enhance its natural colors, creating a deep elegance with swirls with greys and purple and birdseye knots of red.
