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 Sirocco pen has been crafted using a antique 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.

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

Most pen kits are made in the Far East as cheaply as possible, with poor components, poor quality control, and usually containing the bare minimum of poor quality ink. 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 of the CraftyNick hand turned Sirocco and Tempest pens are fitted with a Parker style Beaufort Ink refill with abrasion proof tungsten carbide balls and hard wearing, corrosion proof stainless steel tips. They are not the cheap and nasty refills you can buy on eBay and many other places on the internet, or that are supplied with almost all pen kits. The Sirocco and Tempest pen refills are of the highest quality, manufactured to exacting standards and tolerances using the finest Swiss made components and ink.

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 Parker style Beaufort Ink refill and is quite probably the most reliable click pen on the world market today.
