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.

Pens of this quality take many hours to produce and will provide a lifetime of durability. They combine every day practicality with an elegant and luxurious feel.

Gold and Ebony

There’s nothing quite like feeling the weight and grip of a high-end beautiful hand turned wooden pen in your hand. It just expresses elegance and style. This UK designed ballpoint pen is crafted using recycled Ebony wood and is finished to a very high standard. When viewed in the sunlight you can see a very subtle grain deep down within the high gloss finish. The design and materials make the pen a beauty to handle and look at everyday.

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.

All CraftyNick ballpoint and rollerball pens are fitted with a premium quality Parker style refill. All pens are made here in the UK and come in their own presentation pen boxes.

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.

Custom Fountain Pen

After clearing out a shed belonging to my father who had sadly passed away a year ago, I came across a piece of rosewood that he had probably put aside for one of his woodworking projects. I wanted to do something special with it so I contacted Nick at CraftNick pens after finding him on Google. He suggested that he could make a fountain pen from it and I wasn’t disappointed. The finished pen was beautiful and reminds me of my father and his love of wood every time I use it. Thanks Nick for all your help and advice.

Hi Paul, I really enjoyed making the fountain pen from your dads lovely piece of rosewood for you. It was a real pleasure to turn and the rosewood has such a nice grain and colour. Definitely one of my favourite timbers. Thank you very much for your custom and the 5 star review. Nick

Premium Click Pen and Box

I was gifted one of craftynicks pens for my 30th Birthday. The pen is beautiful and a perfect weight for writing. It was sent to me in the United States although I am from Hampshire originally. It was so nice to receive such a special gift from home with information about where the wood used had come from and a little extra history. The custom presentation box with birthday message was a nice touch. I would highly recommend one of these unique elegant pens. They will look stylish on any desk.

Thanks Matthew for leaving a lovely 5 star review. It was a pleasure making the beautiful click pen for your birthday and I am so pleased that you like it. I certainly hope that you get many years of enjoyment from using it. Nick

Pair of wonderful rollerball pens

I went to Nick to buy a nice new pen for work. Nick took the time to explain the woods he used in his pens, the difference between a ballpoint and rollerball, and what went in to crafting these pens. Each pen was absolutely unique and all were beautiful – I had great trouble deciding which one I wanted! I ended up picking out an elm rollerball with gold plating for myself, and an oak rollerball with rose gold plating as a gift for my girlfriend. Nick even kindly supplied an information sheet for the oak to give that extra background to my girlfriend’s gift. The finish on both pens is truly immaculate – highly polished, unbelievably smooth both to the touch and to write with, and so perfectly weighted as it sits in your hand. The velvet case is the perfect accompaniment for these classy pens, to store them properly and keep them protected. I’ve used a few expensive pens you get from the high street but you really can see and feel the vast difference with the handmade product. The quality in every part of these pens makes for great value, and I couldn’t be happier with them! Thank you, Nick!

Hi Jordan, thank you for taking the time and leaving me a 5 star review. I’m so glad that you enjoyed your visit and found the perfect gift for your girlfriend. The pens that you picked are premium quality and were certainly two of my favourites, crafted in New Forest oak and Hampshire elm. I’m sure both you and your girlfriend will enjoy using them for years to come. Nick

Gold & Ebony Twist Pen

Very pleased with my beautiful Ebony pen. It arrived yesterday, very quick service. The finish is exceptional, just like glass, how do you do it? Thank you. David

Thanks David for your lovely review and the 5 stars. The Ebony was given to me by a friend who had kept it in his shed for years but very little of it left I’m afraid. The exceptional finish is a labour of love and takes hours, but the end result is worth it. Nick

Handcrafted Pens

Having now owned and used two of ‘crafty nicks’ pens I can sincerely say they are a Joy to own and use. I was fortunate to have a bespoke pen made from an unusual timber which had provenance to my family and I. On receipt of the finished items it was clear at first glance as to the minute attention to detail, this along with the smooth actions weight and balance of the pens make ownership a joy.
I would not hesitate to recommend both ownership of such craftsmanship and or offering as a gift to someone deserving!

John Lewis Haskins
