This useful and decorative hand forged pen / pencil holder will decorate your home or office with style.

First, I cut a thick disk from a 2" solid round iron bar.
I then get it red hot in the forge and hammer the edge to give it a nice hammered texture, while it is still hot I punch in a dimple for the point of the pen to rest and to help keep it stable.

For the holder's "body", I used a 1/4" round rod and forged a smooth scroll at one end so there is no pointy tip.
The scroll is a traditionnal feature that yells out hand made and adds to the warmth of this item.
The twirl (spiral) that holds the pen / pencil has an inside diameter of 1/2" which is suitable for most common push pens.

For cleaning, I use the wire brush followed by a light sand paper. This highlights the hammer marks. I heat everything up again and brush on a traditional blacksmith anti-corrosion treatment for inside ironwork applied at a low heat.(This treatment contains beeswax and boiled linseed oil).I really like this finish as it leaves the bare metal to be seen with it's highlights and gives an excellent protection for inside ironwork.

Measurements are 2" wide x 3 5/8" high.
