Paua Abalone Shell Rollerball Pen with Case
Made for the Pen Perfectionist / Collector
Showcase quality roller pen

The pen parts I selected are arguably the best pen parts you can get. I am very picky about pen parts on all of my pens. For every pen style I always get the highest grade components and the most valuable (generally the most expensive). A pen can be a prized possession and I see no reason not to always get the very best.

This pen is made of rhodium plated parts. Rhodium is approx. $1400.00/oz. It is expensive stuff but is has an extremely high wear rating. It is a member of the platinum group, along with iridium, osmium, palladium, platinum, and ruthenium. It is a precious metal, and it is very rare.

The accents on this rollerball pen are handcast black titanium. Changing the exterior color of the metal to black involves a carefully guarded manufacturing process that uses a special titanium alloy to permanently change the color of the titanium to a deep rich grey. Titanium also has an extremely long wear rating.

This handcrafted rollerball pen was made to last many lifetimes and to be passed down through the generations.

The pen and the pen case feature Paua Abalone shell. It is select, hand picked by me (on the pen-not the case), paua abalone. It is some beautiful stuff. There is a rainbow of colors through out the pen and case. Select strips of Paua Abalone were cut and laid on brass tubes (the pen barrels) and secured. It was then placed in a mold and pure crystal clear gem resin was poured over it and left to cure. All of these steps were done by hand with a high level of artistic skill. Once cured the pen “blanks” were removed and placed on my lathe.

I (Mike Trobee) shaped the blank with specialized tools. The result was an almost complete pen body. I then sanded the blank to match exact specifications for extremely superior pen parts. I then wet polished the pen blanks in a multi step process by hand. Next, liquid polish was applied by hand to get a glass like surface on the acrylic surrounding the beautiful Paua Abalone shell. A layer of high grade carnauba wax was applied and hand buffed. Finally I applied museum wax and buffed it with a jewelry polishing cloth as the final touch.

The rollerball cartridge in this pen is a German made wonder. It is ceramic tipped so the ink just glides as you write. I sell refills for this pen (and all my pens) but it is also available at better office supply stores too.

I specialize in Paua Abalone pens. Each one I make is unique and one of a kind. This pen for sale is the best of the best. It is select paua abalone, high end long lasting metals, tough acrylic finish, superior ceramic tipped roller cartridge, and a rare and a pen case all in one. This isn’t a pen you find at a store. Careful attention to detail was made in every step of the making of this pen.

I appreciate your looking at this or any of my work. There are many people selling handcrafted pens and I welcome the opportunity to have you as a customer. My goal is to provide the best of the best and I thank you very much for looking at my pens. : )
