Create an EXTRA special gift with this simply stunning Majestic Squire Gold TN & Chrome Ballpoint Twist Pen blended with Arizona Desert Ironwood body. The pen is well balanced for a relaxed writing experience while the ballpoint transmission operation is simple and smooth. Superior quality Gold TN & Chrome plating will provide you with years of a long lasting brilliant finish. Refill's are Parker style and can be bought at any office store.
The body is made from Arizona Desert Ironwood , beautiful dark brown.
The body turned on a lathe to shape and size. Then cyanoacrylate (Super glue) finish is applied or used to fill any imperfections. This type of finish is extremely durable and will help keep your pen safe from water, oil and the rigors of daily use. The finish is very similar to an acrylic, and will last the life of the pen with no problems. I only make one or two pens a week in my home work shop.
Thanks for looking, Todd
Information on ironwood. The tree is also know as Olneya tesota Ironwood is very hard and heavy. Its density is greater than water and thus sinks; it does not float downstream in washes, and must be moved by current motion. Due to its considerable hardness, processing desert ironwood is difficult.
