Another laser-cut specimen with an eagle head boasting a mane of flaming feathers. It is a very striking pen. The Matching copper parts of the pen are a great combination of colors. Each feather, each color of the eagle, is a separate inlay glued into place and then turned on the lathe. It is then sanded all the way down to 12,000 grit sandpaper and sealed with wood finishing compounds. It uses a Parker style ballpoint refill. All of the barrels of these pens have been turned personally by me on my lathe.
Grasp the Eagle barrel with one hand the copper grip area of the pen with the other hand and pull apart the sections of the pen. Unscrew the refill holder to replace the cartridge.
I love these barber shop pens. There are actually 4 separate curled pieces of dyed wood that wrap around a brass tube core to create this distinct pattern. It uses a Parker type ballpoint refill and is one of the few pens I have that is a “Click” pen rather than one that twists to expose the writing tip. All of the barrels of these pens have been turned personally by me on my lathe.
This is a push-button pen. To replace the refill tube, the barber pole barrel unscrews from the black portion near the tip.
A pen with powder blue circuit board under a layer of resin. Parker style ballpoint refill is used. A super duper geek gift. This circuit board was part of a stash that was smuggled out of Nevada from Area 51 and is rumored to have come from one of the UFO’s that “don’t exist.” If you believe that, you need to be slapped. (chuckle) Hey, it’s late, leave me alone...

To change the refill, simply pull the barrel of the pen away from the black portion of the pen near the tip. Here, you can access the refill carrier.
The barrel of this custom pen is made of alternate ivory. Not real, of course, but it has a very nice ivory feel to it. Yes, there is such a thing. A slightly different model of a twist activated pen. Off the beaten path, for sure.
Access to the refill is made from the top, or pocket clip end of the pen. This end cap not only is used to engage the refill for writing, it is also used to gain access to the refill by continuing to rotate the end cap CCW. (Lefty Lose-ee)
If you are a fan of the color blue, man, this should tickle your fancy! The vibrant color is coming from acrylic and polished after sanding it down with a 12,000 grit abrasive. If you run out of ink, you’ll be replacing the supply with a Parker style ballpoint refill.
The blue barrel pulls away from the lower black portion of the pen. The exposed innards of the pen unscrews from the pen by holding it at the very end of the unit and twisting it off to expose the refill.
Oh oh ohh! Actual circuit board under a clear layer of resin. How cool is that? Uses a Parker style ballpoint refill. A perfect gift for the geek in your life. All of the barrels of these pens have been turned personally by me on my lathe.
This pen is slightly different when changing refills. The barrel unscrews from the black portion near the writing end of the pen. This is done after fully retracting the tip of the pen back up in the barrel. During reassembly, make sure you twist the barrel into the writing position with a bit of firmness so that the pen will engage and disengage for writing without coming apart for a refill change.
Bright red and gunmetal gray is a great combination for this custom turned pen. It is twist activated and uses a Parker style ballpoint refill.
Red barrel pulls away from lower half of the pen to reveal the casing that holds the refill. That also unscrews to expose the Parker refill.
A very colorful blend of blues and tans. It is a two-piece pen where the cap can dock on either end of the pen so that it helps prevent loss. A traditional style pen with a bit of flair. It uses a Pic Roller refill. All of the barrels of these pens have been turned personally by me on my lathe.
Cap unscrews from the pen and barrel unscrews from black area of the writing end of the pen
This type of material is going to become popular, I think. It utilizes natural burl woods and combines it with different color formulas of acrylic. No two pens would ever be alike. It would be an impossibility as each barrel is individually hand crafted. Most pieces have a pretty even amount of each material showing. A very snappy looking pen that uses a Parker style ballpoint refill. All of the barrels of these pens have been turned personally by me on my lathe.
Tip retracts and extends by twisting the very top of the pen. This is also the access point to get to the refill. Simply continue to twist the top CCW until the cap comes off.
Another natural wood-barrel pen coming directly from my shop here in central California. It uses a Parker style ballpoint refill as do most of my other pens offered here on these pages.
Writing point retracts and extends by twisting the very top of the pen. Refill is replaced by pulling the wood barrel away from the lower portion of the pen. Then the casing unscrews to expose the refill
