Derek is our resident wood turner, specialising in making bespoke fountain & rollerball pen making and sharing his wood turning skills through his classes.

In this age of text and email, the keyboard is king. The gift of a handwritten letter has been lost, and I passionately want to keep these skills alive. A quality Fountain or Rollerball pen remains an intimate and thoughtful gift. 

I set up a small pen making business specializing in the manufacture of bespoke handmade pens, and thoroughly enjoy what I do. I’d love to share it with you. I have a wide range of stock pens for review. Also, I offer a service to craft a bespoke writing instrument to your own preferences. Colour, weight, size and balance. There is nothing finer than a solid gold writing nib!

Fountain and Rollerball pens are tailored to suit all pockets. Available individually or as matched sets. Each pen is presented in its own case, but for that special gift, consider my range of handmade wooden pen cases with optional engraving! All pen accessories / ink refills, etc are stocked.

A common accessory for the pen collector is a desk cradle. I offer a range of uniquely designed pen cradles, either for the individual instrument, or up to a carousel pen cradle displaying 6 pens.
