Announcement    I log & mill my own wood—except for my exotic hardwood pens. That means the crafted item you are purchasing was literally a tree in northern Wisconsin, and from tree felling, to when you open your package, the only person to touch that item has been me. I pride my work in this, as I am the only truly “organic pen maker” I’m aware of. With my products, you get the real deal—you’re not paying for the finished product, you’re purchasing wood with a real story—you’re purchasing “real.”

Custom orders are welcome & encouraged. Please don't hesitate to contact me with any request, large or small.

Updates

From tree to you—the wood has to dry (evenly so, or else it splits open), and this is how each round of pen blanks is rotated through the process. These will go through ~3 to 4 rotations to get the moisture content down to a stable level.

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

Please message me if you’d like anything. I do more than pens, and the demand is so great that I rarely get to do all the other projects I would love to do.

Pricing

Presently, nearly all items available for purchase in this world are made for production. I choose not to follow.

My market is anyone who desires the best. For that reason my prices are higher. It’s the only way I’m able to do the work I do—our society is fast-food; quick & easy fixes; short-term gratification over life-long happiness.

To continue to give those pursuing long-lasting products and 100% satisfaction with their purchase, I must combat the industrial churning of a lower tier accordingly.

Thank you. I very much value your business.

Why risk the expense on my pens & items?

You’re not taking any chances. You will receive exactly what you’re expecting, and more. If for some reason this isn’t the case, I will provide a wide variety of remedies of your choice.

I am also available for any questions or concerns for as long as you own your product. I’m happy to help with anything you’d ever require.

In short—you are not risking a single thing.


“You can't live a perfect day without doing something for someone who will never be able to repay you.”
-John Wooden

Pen Prioritization

If you have a pen in your cart OR favorited a particular model/style, but are either waiting to purchase because a) there isn’t a grain pattern that strikes/resonates with you yet, or b) due to a particular style/model e.g., Olympian Elite Fountain Pens being out of stock at the moment, PLEASE let me know so I can prioritize getting pens done that people are waiting for.

Personalized Corporate Gifts

Of note: I make regular custom, engraved & personalized orders for businesses. Not limited to pens.

Range is vast—sole-proprietors e.g, Financial Advisors, to massive corporations, such as IBM.

Please don’t hesitate to reach out if this may be of interest for your organization; expectations met have been nothing short of astounding.

Please see assorted business gift/order reviews throughout — especially from Mark P. on November 29 2020 for testimonial from IBM.
