Some time back, I made pens for my sister and her husband. Well, my brother is coming “back east” for our nephew’s wedding so I thought I would take that opportunity to make him a pen, too. Hope he likes it!!
This is the Titanium Screw Cap Fountain Pen from Woodcraft (#126680). The wood is black walnut. Thought the dark color would nicely contrast with the gold accents of the pen. The pen was sanded through 220 using regular sand paper; then through 4000 using Abralon pads and finally through 12000 with micromesh pads. To enhance the feel of real wood, I used “Hut PPP” brown and then white as the only polish/finish.
This pen kit is nice because it gives the user the option of cartridge refills or the traditional “ink well” replenishment.
