A British veteran owned small craft business making bespoke handmade pens, mainly from historic timbers and other specialised woods

Company Description

Handmade pens from a UK Veteran owned small business a true pen artisan. All types of pens including fountain, rollerball and ballpoint are handmade by myself in my workshop. I mainly use recycled timber or timber with history especially WW2 era. I first became involved in woodworking and wood turning when it was made part of my PSTD rehab program. This was a few years ago, upon leaving the military after a 25 year career. I rediscovered pen turning last year after making the decision to semi retire and I have never been happier. The buzz I get from new challenges, learning new skills and interaction with my customers is something I’ve not felt in a long time. Some of the customer challenges I have had so far, include 3 hand made pens from a Grandparents walking stick, a pen made from Granddads old hammer and modelled a pen clip from a broken belt buckle that belonged to clients parent. I take commissions and specialise in bespoke pen design, working closely together with my customers to get the pen you really want.
