This pen was handmade by me in our woodshop located in the East Foothills of San Jose, California.
It's made from Zebrawood that comes from West Africa and the pen is a Spartan Style pen in 24kt Gold Plate with a Parker Style Ballpoint black ink refill in either Fine point (.8mm) or Medium point (1mm). The pen measures a total of 5 3/4" long.
To replace the ink refill, unscrew the tip and remove the spring from the pen refill. Place the spring onto the new pen refill and drop it back into the barrel before screwing the tip back onto the pen. If you want to replace the included pen refill with a different pen point, make sure the new refill is a Parker Style refill and follow the same steps.
Your pen will be shipped in either a pen box or sleeve inside a bubble wrapped bag & bubble envelope to protect it as best as possible during shipping. Domestic and International shipping is calculated upon checkout.
My goal is to make each piece as unique as possible so when you receive an item from my store, it's one of a kind and I will never make another Zebrawood Spartan Pen again. You've got the only one! Because I've only been doing woodturning a few months, there might be some slight imperfections in the wood since I'm still learning the art of a perfect finish but all pens are sanded smooth to 10k and polished to a glossy, if not glassy finish. I try to price everything fairly reasonable because I know what I paid for the pen kit and wood and as long as I make back what it cost me to make it and a few extra dollars for the next project, I'm happy to price my items around the cost to make it. By no means does the price reflect the care or quality of items that I take to create an item. I'm just really happy to be able to share my love of penturning with you.
If you do purchase an item and find that the wood has cracked or part is malfunctioning - no matter how long you have had it - simply contact me and send the defective pen or part back to me and I'll either turn a new piece of wood, replace the part or pen altogether. I want to stand behind my creations so you have some piece of mind when purchasing an item from my store.
Thanks for looking and please let me know if you have any questions!
Wish I could give it six stars. This is my second purchase from Tatonnement Turnery and it proves the first one I was so happy with was no fluke. The zebrawood has a beautiful grain pattern and is perfectly finished. The fit of the wood to metal is flawless. The pen was swiftly delivered and well protected in the presentation box and packing material. I can't get over the amount of value for the prices charged.
