Handcrafted Stone Twist Pen Gray Alabaster

 

Designer: GW Pens

Sold Out

Offering a new twist on an old favorite, I am proud to present this handcrafted twist ballpoint pen with a body made from solid Alabaster stone. The natural veining in the stone has made it a favorite for stone sculptors, adding a level of depth and beauty beyond just the magnificent color. Here, the mixture of light and dark gray stone goes perfectly with the black titanium plated pen hardware, paired with rose gold. 

The solid stone, once drilled, did have some translucency that needed to be addressed. To mask the inner workings of the pen, I painted the inside of the hole a hand-mixed shade of gray. This lets the light pass through the stone while making sure to not change its color. Working with Alabaster is a little different than wood, but it is soft enough to allow me to use most of the same tools. Of course, because it is a softer stone, care needs to be taken with the pen. This is best suited for a shirt pocket or desk. 

At first glance the idea of a pen from solid stone sounds like it might be too heavy, but this is only slightly heavier than an Oak pen. I also made sure to only use the stone on specific pen hardware sets that have exceptional balance. When writing with this, it will feel as if the pen nestles right into your hand. The included Parker style Schmidt EasyFlow 9000 ink cartridge adds another element of effortless writing. When the ink runs out, simply unscrew the tip to replace it with a new cartridge, available at most office supply stores. 

Your new pen is Ready to Ship via USPS Priority Mail for Free in the US and will ship in a black GW pen case with red satin lining. If shipped to a NJ address 7% sales tax will be added.
