Pen types range from fountain, rollerball, or ballpoint. Each pen is hand-turned by me using the finest quality materials in order to obtain the highest level of craftsmanship in the end product. These pen options allow for a purchase that fits the user, whether it is for personal use or for a gift for someone special. Feel free to explore the site to find the handmade pens that suit your needs.  I can make just about any form of pen from the options below.  This list is not exhaustive, I can make pens from almost anything… or at least try!

Pen Types


Ballpoint pens utilize a small rotating ball bearing to dispense ink as it is moved across paper. The ink is typically oil-based and dries quickly.


Fountain pens are a classic writing instrument that employs a nib to draw ink from an internal reservoir, offering a smooth and customizable writing experience.


Rollerball pens use a tiny ball to apply water-based ink onto paper, combining the convenience of a ballpoint pen with the fluidity of a fountain pen.

Pen Styles

Bolt Action

Similar to a “clicky” pen, bolt-action pens feature a stylish bolt-like mechanism to extend and retract the tip of the pen, providing a unique and tactile experience.

Junior Gentleman

Junior Gentleman style pens have an attractive, classic look. A traditional pen of generous weight and width, perfect for the writer who likes a heavier pen. 


Twist pens feature a retractable mechanism activated by twisting the barrel, offering a convenient and secure way to protect the pen tip when not in use.
