Every one of my pens is handmade by me in my shop in north carolina using high quality components with close attention to detail.
Each piece is crafted with precision that ensures a truly one of a kind, exceptional final product. Preparing each pen that i make includes cutting, drilling and epoxying the body of the pen, turning to a final shape on the lathe, sanding numerous times to achieve a smooth surface, and then polished to a lustrous shine with a durable finish before final assembly. Due to the quality of the products as well as the additional time, care and my attempts to perfection that i use in crafting my pens, you can be assured that each of my pens are crafted to be as flawless as possible and that each one goes through my personal but rigorous quality review before being made available. The pen pictured is the actual pen you will receive and includes a small box and velvet drawstring pouch ready for gifting.
