He “manufacture” by hand exquisitely finished pens in different styles. The gold colored pens are a 24k gold plating or a 12k gold plating,they come in silver,gun-metal and some in rhodium. The pens are made with indigenous woods or an acrylic plastic.
Ross told me he started wood turning in 2010 and went to lessons for 2 years, bought himself a lathe after about a year. He then soon started making some pens and enjoyed making them so he decide to start making some to sell at the shop at Sedgefield to get a some extra pocket money to buy more tools and ssupplies. That’s how it started.
There are many different styles and variables in the pens , the main styles being:
Streamline – R280.00
Streamline Acrylic – R300.00
Gun pen – R500.00
Gun pen acrylic – R500.00
Jr gentlemen – R300.00
Jr gentlemen acrylic – R400.00

The pens makes an ideal corporate gift or present for that special person.
