Here's one for somebody that likes a slightly wider gripped pen, the sleek looking Polaris is a joy to write with. Measuring approximately 14mm at its widest point, is more than enough to show the beauty of this redwood burl barrel. The wooden blank has first been stabilised prior to turning. This involves fully drying the wood before impregnating it with resin using extreme vacuum that draws out all the air in the piece to allow the resin to take its place. Once impregnated the wood is cooked at a precise temperature for several hours curing the resin. This process serves two purposes, it makes it better for me to work with and you get a higher quality and more durable product as the pen will be more resistant to movement through temperature and humidity changes that can often cause untreated pens to crack. This has carefully been hand turned, sanded and polished to a lustre like finish by myself before the black titanium plated components are assembled into it.
This stylish ballpoint is fitted with a black Parker type refill that is operated by a gentle twist of the knurled top. Changing the cartridge is done by simply removing the nose cone. Blue can be fitted upon request both black and blue are available in gel versions.
This will be supplied in a leatherette presentation case and a black drawstring pouch for everyday use.
