With this well-made hardware, you can create an attractive, durable pen. High-quality platings yield a crisply detailed, uniform surface and a precise fit between parts, combining ease of assembly with trouble-free function.
This single-barrel twist-ballpoint pen takes its name from the French word for “curve” – a reference to the elegant contours of its grip, finial and clip. The pen comes with black ink and is relatively simple to make. The gold finish includes small amounts of cobalt and palladium for abrasion resistance.
Requires a 27/64" drill bit and a minimum 9/16" × 2 1/4" blank. Drill bits, blanks, bushings and mandrels sold separately. Because mishaps can occur during turning or assembly, we offer brass replacement tubes.
We also offer a starter set that consists of two pen kits in a gold finish, bushings and the required drill bit.
