CAN I HEAR YOU SAY "WOW!"?

My goal is for you to have a high quality handcrafted pen that will make you say “WOW!” To do this, I use only the highest quality pen components and spend hours and days to creating handmade pens that will rival any pen maker or pen store. As an end result most of our business is with repeat customers. It is a passion of mine to design “one of a kind” wood fountain pens, rollerball pens, and ballpoint pens. I hope you read my feedback on this site. It makes me smile.

I really appreciate your visiting my handmade wood pen site! I would love to have you as a new customer. Every pen you see is the actual pen for sale (not one “like” it). I use exotic woods, Paua abalone shell, feathers, rattlesnake skin, gem quality stone (tru-stone), and many other quality materials. The components I use are rich in rhodium, titanium, gold, sterling silver, and crystal. If you have any questions, I would be honored to help you.


NUMBER ONE PEN MAKER ON ETSY

I started making pens after buying an $800 Visconti fountain pen. I brought it home and started looking at it. It is a very cool pen, but I thought silently, " How hard can it be to make a pen like this?" I studied, read, watched and questioned other top pen makers for over a year until one night I had had enough. I ordered everything I needed to create a first class pen studio within a span of 2 days. Much to my surprise after a year and a half, I was the number one pen seller on Etsy. I had another business at the same time which forced me to take a leave from pen making for far too long. The good news is ...IM BACK!

STARTING OVER AGAIN WITH YOUR HELP

For the past six months, I have been getting back into the groove of pen making. It is a very touchy feely thing to do well. It takes awhile to get the feel back, that unconscious competence. It is great to be back and making top notch one of a kind fountain pens, rollerball pens, ballpoints. My goal is to make you say WOW! If I ever fall short of that goal...let me know and I'll make it right.

Thank you again. You are welcome here anytime!

All the best,

Mike (Trobee)
