Crafted from raw 6061-T6 machined Aluminum, this back to basics ballpoint pen is your new every day carry. The aircraft grade aluminum is known for its structural strength, toughness and light weight. Smooth threads are machined into solid metal. This results in an unusual and very durable Pen.

Handmade Industrial Pens Ambrosia Maple
Ambrosia Maple is Soft Maple with a cream colored background which is host to the ambrosia beetle. The beetle burrows into the tree and leaves a fungus in its path, which is what creates the discoloration in the wood and create a very unique pattern in each board. In most or all of the streaks there are tiny holes from where the beetle burrowed into the wood. Neither the fungus nor the holes disturb the integrity of the wood. During finishing any tiny holes are filled and the result is a stunning and unique, one of a kind pen.

Ink Pen Crafting Process
The ballpoint pen is constructed first by hand selecting each piece and then cutting, drilling and turning the pen to its final shape on a lathe. The pen is then sanded 7 times with progressively finer grits (150, 220, 320, 400, 600, and 800) of sandpaper, to achieve a very smooth surface and a diameter tolerance of .001 - .002 in, for a smooth transition with the metal parts. Wood pens then have 10 coats of finish applied and the ink pen is sanded again 9 times with sandpaper to 12,000 grits to a high shine or satin finish. Acrylic and Tru-Stone pens are sanded 9 times with sandpaper to 12,000 grits for a high shine and then a polish is added.
