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.

Extra refills can be purchased separately @ £2.45 per pack + postage from the CraftyNick store.
Pack contains 1x Parker style standard ink refill, medium point, black.


With a specially designed mechanism, the Tempest ballpoint pen provides a click ballpoint with a reliable and trustworthy clicker, that keeps on working. As with all the Tempest and Sirocco pens, it is fitted with a premium Parker style Ink refill and is quite probably the most reliable click pen on the world market today. 
(Beware of cheap imitation copies).

Sirocco Gold Ebony 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!
