Love this


Wooden ballpoint twist pen handmade in African Mahogany wood taken from the side panel support rails during restoration of W2180 rail coach. The wood was removed as the joints were found to have rotted.

W2180 coach was built for British Railways (Western Region) in 1950 by Metropolitan-Cammel Carriage and Wagon Co. Ltd to a Hawksworth design. Now undergoing a full renovation and is being rebuilt as a GWR Buffet to be used by South Devon Railway.

The wood is African Mahogany which was used widely for this type of work along with boat building.

This is a beautiful handmade quality pen, the comfortable shape in the hand is complemented by the wonderful natural feel and warmth of the wood with a traditional wax finish.

The pen accepts standard Parker type refills which are widely available. It includes a high quality refill with black ink. It will be shipped in the case pictured, along with a small certificate giving details of the wood.

All pens are handmade by me beginning with rough cut woods for the body. The body of the pen is turned on a lathe to the final shape as seen on each pen. The body is then sanded, sealed, waxed and polished to its final finish. Assembly is completed by using pre-made high quality pen components for long lasting performance.
Each pen is unique and will be made to order.
