Spiral Segmented Pen - Blackwood and Yellowheart Slimline

I've recently started trying my hand at segmented wood pens. Each is a one-of-a kind creation, and striking to hold. This pen is made from Pao Amarello, or yellowheart, and African blackwood, using Artisan Slimline parts that are plated with black chrome. The twist mechanism is smooth, the finish is shiny, and I really like how the colors go together - one of my favorite pens to date.

Wood Pen - Purpleheart and Chrome, Custom Design

This purpleheart wood pen was a bit of an experiment for me. I started with chrome slimline parts, and then I did away with the center band so that I wasn't limited to a certain diameter in the middle of the pen. I like the resulting design - not as slim as the slimline pens I'm used to seeing, and a little shorter - this keeps the small convenient planner-sized pen but gives it a more masculine look.

Bloodwood Pen with Custom Clip

This wood pen was custom designed for a special gift for a friend's husband. It shows one of the many possibilities if you're looking for a one-of-a-kind gift. Other shapes and clips and choices of wood are available - see below or visit my "Design Your Pen" page to walk through your choices. The double-concave shape is surprisingly comfortable to hold, and makes the pen stand out in a crowd.

Bloodwood comes in deep reds, from light like this to dark like other bloodwood pens I've made. It's very hard and dense, my personal favorite for pens. Bloodwood is actually a name for several types of reddish wood. It is hard and tough, with no smell at all, unless it's smoking hot, in which case it smells like coconut and sweet incense. Shavings are a striking bright red color, and it finishes nicely. Hard and strong, it's supposed to age to a deep brown color, but the finish will slow that down.
