Handcrafted Luxury

Even in a world of smart phones, tablets, and e-readers, the popularity of luxury pens is actually on the rise.

There is still nothing quite like the look and feel of a handcrafted luxury pen to add a touch of elegance and authority to your everyday interactions. A handcrafted pen is a stylish writing tool that can put a touch of charm on your desk and can provide you with better writing experience in your home and office.

The ultimate luxury pen clearly remains the fountain pen, utilizing a metal nib and containing an internal ink supply via replaceable cartridges, or a refillable converter. Fountain pens offer the ultimate in writing elegance and sophistication.

Begin your search for the perfect handcrafted pen by considering just which kind of pen you wish to have. The three basic varieties to consider are ballpoints, rollerballs, and fountain pens. (What’s the difference between ballpoint and rollerball pens).

Matching Fountain & Rollerball Pens

Two distinctive collectable pens of unrivalled beauty and quality, handcrafted using Elm from a storm damaged local tree. They are adorned in the finest premium quality 22 carat gold platings with black titanium accents on the centre band and cap end.

All of my UK designed fountain pens are fitted with a two tone German made high quality nib as standard together with an ink converter. They can also be used with a standard short reach ink cartridge.

For most luxury pen buyers, a fountain pen is the writing instrument of choice.

Recycled Oak and Mahogany

A specially commissioned fountain and ballpoint pen made from the original timber frames that were replaced during the restoration of Foxtrot Eight, a landing craft used by Portsmouth based HMS Fearless.

Making pens of this quality and attention to detail involves many hours to produce. Every pen is lovingly handcrafted and finished to an exceptionally high standard. Choose from traditional wooden fountain pens, ballpoints, or rollerball twist pens all finished in a hard wearing luxurious mirror-finish.

Every CraftyNick pen is unique with no two alike. Each one is guaranteed to make a great impression on you and those around you.

A pen is only as good as the materials used to make it!

There is nothing worse for a well-made pen than a refill that doesn’t work because it’s dried up or corroded, or the ink flow skips, or it feels scratchy on the paper. 

The pen kits I use in my hand turned pens are of the highest quality using premium pen kits from a select few special suppliers and mainly designed in the UK. They have been engineered and manufactured to the highest standards and tolerances to take their place amongst the best available worldwide.

High quality pen refills

All CraftyNick hand turned ballpoint pens are fitted with a Parker style Ink refills with abrasion proof tungsten carbide balls and hard wearing, corrosion proof stainless steel tips.

And yes, you really can tell the difference.

UK Design Limited Edition

A stunning premium twist pen designed in the UK. Hand turned from a beautiful piece of Rosewood and adorned in high quality rhodium and titanium plate. Rhodium is considered the rarest and most valuable precious metal in the world – well above gold or silver.

This limited edition ball point is quite simply, a stunning pen.

Presented in an attractive gift box and comprising a handy shirt clip, this ballpoint pen will make the perfect gift for a loved one, or indeed yourself.

Fitted with a premium quality Parker style ink refill.

A pen is a a gift that travels everywhere you go!

It can be hard to come up with an original gift, but even a small twist on a generic gift can show loved ones you’ve put time and effort into the gesture. So if you are looking for something different to give, a unique handcrafted wooden pen will make a perfect gift to give for all occasions. The professional finishes and sleek shape of each pen will make a striking impression in any setting.
Unique CraftyNick hand turned pens make great graduation gifts, anniversary gifts and corporate gifts.

Premium Twist Pen

A high end UK designed Twist Pen in Titanium Gold with Black Chrome accents. This particular ballpoint is part of a range of pens which includes Fountain, Rollerball and Ballpoint pens, all of the highest quality. 

Turn the cap to advance the writing tip and simply turn the cap back once you have finished writing and the ballpoint nib returns to the cap.

The pen in the photo has been handcrafted from a beautiful piece of Lignum Vitae. This lovely piece of wood was rescued from a water works skip. The rich colours and the depth of shine combine quality and craftsmanship giving it an individuality not found in factory-made pens, not even very expensive ones!

It looks good too.
