I am new to the world of nice pens, and had wanted a pen with a similar shape and weight to an old one I had 15 years ago. I fell in love with this one and it arrived quickly. Because I'm not knowledgeable about good pens, I was saddened when I discovered the pen doesn't make a satisfying 'click' that ballpoint pens usually do. It turns out that this is actually how higher quality pens are - much quieter than their cheaper counterparts. I've been very happy with the weight and how it writes, and it instantly became one of my favorites!

This pen is beautiful to look at, and has a smooth twist mechanism, clip, and grip. While it has some weight to it, the shorter size feels perfect in my smaller hand. Shipping was quick. I would buy from Francis again.
I have enjoyed working with wood all my life. Originally, there were much larger projects such as home remodels. As the years past I started to look for a smaller type of wood working project. I have always liked custom, handmade one of a kind pens so I naturally investigated this craft.
I found that the fine detail work of pen making and the endless varieties of materials were fascinating to work with. Each pen is truly a unique one of a kind item. I work in equal parts with local woods, exotic woods, acrylics and stone to make my pens. Each has their own beauty and quality that is unique.
The inventory status for each pen is always only one. That is because each one is uniquely made and truly one of a kind. All our materials including rare wood types come from legal sustainable forests.

Frequently asked questions
Who manufactures your pens?
I handcraft all the pens on this website. No two handmade items are exactly alike. Variations in color, shading, texture, shape and grain are inherent in a handmade item. No two items are alike, so that every single one is one-of-a-kind. This means that every handmade item you purchase is also one-of-a-kind. What’s not to like about that?
Where does your wood come from?
All of our wood products are purchased through legally licensed providers that provide exotic woods from sustainable forest product areas.
How do you price your pens?
All of our pen pricing is based on the price of the materials involved in the making of the pen. You may see two pens that are the same style but priced differently. The price of the finishes plus the cost of the Woods or Acrylic affect the pricing. Chrome plating while durable is less expensive than say Antique Pewter. A more common wood is cheaper than a rare exotic such as Burl. All pens are not created equal. The time involved for the final steps of sanding and sizing for an exact fit are the most important. My pens may at first seem a little more expensive but the finished quality of fit and finish are very high and require more time and skill to complete. I redo and dis-guard pens and parts all the time that do not meet my standards.
Will the pen I order be the same as the image?
Yes, all of our pens are one of a kind, no large production. When a pen is purchased, the item page changes to out of stock because it is the only one there is.
What if I want a pen that is out of stock?
If you see a pen you like, let me know, I will give you a price, and estimated ship date. Please note that although the pen I make will be similar there will be slight changes in color and grain as each wood or acrylic piece is unique
Can I get a custom pen made?
Yes, you can, if you see a pen style you like and a wood or acrylic you like on another pen let us know and we will give you a price, and estimated ship date
Where do you ship to?
We currently only sell and ship to the 48 continental USA states and Canada by USPS.
Can I return my purchase?
We accept returns for 14 days from the date you receive your order. We do not pay for return shipping unless the pen is defective.
Can I get refills for the pens I order?
Every ballpoint and rollerball pen I sell uses standard Cross or Parker refills. The fountain pens use Waterman Style, and all are available at office supply and stationery stores worldwide. I also carry some refills on this website.
Do you display at Craft Fairs?
Yes I do, any upcoming shows will be found on my homepage under announcements. I currently am only doing shows in Massachusetts.
