About

Our Goal at Trobee Pens is to have you say "WOW!" Professionally handmade pens with high value & outstanding service.

A good quality writing instrument is part of your image. Every fine detail is of immense importance. “Close” to getting it right isn’t good enough. I have been a professional in every field I have worked for over 25 years and every time I make a pen regardless of the price point, I make each pen it as though I was making it for myself.

I’m picky so I get very focused on getting every detail perfect. I believe that is one reason we have sold over 1500 high quality writing instruments on Etsy alone. Add in other venues of sale and that number more than doubles. A huge percent of my business is from repeat customers. They know how focused on detail I can be and come back because they know I always do my best.

Each pen you see is custom and no other pen exists like it anywhere else in the world. Each pen is handmade on a lathe to exact specifications.

In my pen shop, I have top of the line equipment to help make everything I do flawlessly. Every pen I make is by hand, there is no automation to duplicate anything. I am a perfectionist when it comes to ensuring you receive the best handcrafted pen possible at any cost. My goal is to make a work of art that is flawlessly functional.

Trobee Pens is about authenticity and quality, not production low quality low cost cheap pens. I take my time making sure you say, "Wow!" when you open the box and see the pen you purchased.

Many custom pens I handcraft often take days to create and finish. I do not use any automated process. It is all done by hand with top notch tools and equipment.

Each luxury pen I make is done in the Trobee Pen Studio in Collierville, TN. All pens, whether wood, carbon fiber, trustone, acrylic, or any other materials are "turned" on a lathe, sanded (usually by up to 20 grades), depending on the material used and then sealed. Next, I hand carefully apply coats of finish so each pen looks great and is durable.

Next, I carefully re-sand each custom pen with micro-mesh to achieve a polished look (often a glass like appearance). Next, liquid polish is applied and then finally it is finished with Renaissance wax ( a museum grade wax) and buffed.

I want you to get your handcrafted pen and say, "WOW!" I think that is one of the main reasons I have this passion for pen making.

I always strive to make more than just a pen...my goal is to create a work of art that will last forever, hopefully, will be passed down through the generations and will inspire all who use it to write.

Frequently asked questions
Do you do custom requests for making pens?

Definitely! If you want a certain style of pen in a material I can put on a lathe, I'll do my best to make that special pen in a short period of time. Just message me and we can get moving along!

Where do you ship?

Everywhere. All across the world with few exceptions. I use USPS (United States Postal Service) in most cases but if you'd prefer a different carrier....message me and I'll make it happen.

Shipping in the USA takes approx. 1-5 days to receive your order.

Shipping outside of the USA can vary. Normally it takes 5-10 days to receive your order. However, occasionally (very infrequently) customs will delay an order. I wish I had some control over customs in different countries but alas...I don't.

Do you gift wrap?

Absolutely. Check in my pen listings and you'll find "gift wrapping" I have several styles of gift wrapping, bows, and cards.

Can I include a personal note to be included in a pen purchase for a gift?

Yes! I will be glad to hand write a brief Happy Birthday, Congratulations!, Merry Christmas, Thank You!, or any other kind of note on a card and enclose it in an envelope...FREE!

Just let me know what to say and I promise to use my best handwriting in helping you make that pen gift extra special!

How many pens have you made and how long have you been making pens?

An honest guess would be 3000+ pens.
I've sold over 1500 on Etsy as of Nov. 2018.
I have over 500 5-Star reviews too!

I've been making pens now for about 11 years.

Do you do make pens for corporations?

Yes. I've made pens for awards, special recognition, and many other purposes for companies of all sizes. The largest company is Federal Express I make pens for them frequently to be used as special awards. I'm guessing Fred Smith himself has used a Trobee Pen from time to time too.

I think my favorite was a company that had been run by their father for 50+ years. After his death one of the sons sent me his walking cane and ask for me to make 8 special pens from the wood. The 8 pens I made went to the remaining family member running the company. It was something for them to remember him everyday. I think he'd give me the thumbs up on the finished pens. It was just a wonderful experience to bring some happiness to an otherwise sad occasion.

What's the Capital of Wisconsin?

Madison.

Do you have retailers selling your pens?

A few select retail outlets sell Trobee Pens.
If you are a retailer...message me...let's talk.
