Walnut and 10k Gold Slimline Pen

This Walnut and 10k Gold Slimline Twist Pen is made with the Artisan brand parts, including durable 10k gold plated ring, tip, and clip. The wood is figured black walnut, which I thoroughly enjoy turning. It feels like cutting hard smooth chocolate, and finishes beautifully. Artisan Slimline pens have a nice balanced weight and good quality ink refills so they feel good to write with.

I like making pens. My brother-in-law asked me if they're hard to make. I didn't think so till I explained the procedure to him and he said "whoah." There are a lot of steps, and you need specialized tools to do the job, so it's nice and technical.

Check out Craft Supply or Woodcraft, or Ebay for pen blank materials - there's an amazing selection out there. There are also other pen styles. These are twist pens. There are capped pens, fountian pens, pencils, a whole slew of things available. Email me with what you like and I'll give you a price. For the pen shown, I would charge about $30.00. Order a matching pencil for a Pen and Pencil Set.
