Handcrafted Ballpoint Pens Black Titanium and Platinum Plating
Titanium is versatile, lightweight and strong, this metal is as strong as steel but is 45% lighter in weight, and is similar to platinum in its resistance to tarnishing. Titanium's strength, durability, and lustrous beauty make it an ideal choice for pens that are subject to daily wear.
Titanium Oxide is the hardest metal available for pen coatings. Its only "down" side is that it has a dark smoky color rather than the bright brilliance of platinum and rhodium. With the appropriate pen style and body, this can give a very dramatic and rich appearance.
Platinum is extremely durable. It's shiny and beautiful, but it's also a metal that will last for generations.
Possibly natures most brilliant and durable precious metal, Platinum is used by the world’s premier pen manufacturers to plate their very finest pens. Platinum has a soft white hue. It's 30 times rarer than gold (which means it's more expensive), 40% heavier than 14K gold and platinum will not tarnish or oxidize, however it ages beautifully by developing a lustrous patina.
Platinum sells for as much as $1,500.00 per troy ounce and it is unmatched in brilliance and durability. The Rhodium and Platinum plating on my pens will last a lifetime.
Handmade Pens Pheasant Feathers in Acrylic
This exotic and fantastic Ringneck Pheasant pen is painstaking processed where each feather has to be individually and carefully placed on the pen tube. The tube is then carefully cast in clear resin to preserve and magnify the beauty of the feathers. Every blank is a work of art and as individual as the feathers from which it is made!
Note, No birds are harmed during the collection of our feathers.

Ink Pen Crafting Process
The ink 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.
