With this well-made hardware, you can create an attractive, durable ballpoint pen. High-quality platings yield a crisply detailed, uniform surface and a precise fit between parts, combining ease of assembly with trouble-free function.
Named after 19th-century landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted (designer of Mount Royal and Central Park), this elegant pen is a slimmer version of the popular cigar-style pen, with a roller-style clip and black tapered accent bands. It has a robust double-twist mechanism, comes with black ink and takes Parker-style refills.
Requires a standard "A" mandrel, a bushing set, an O-size drill bit (according to machinists’ bit-sizing standards) and a minimum 3/4" × 5" pen blank, all sold separately. Because mishaps can occur during turning or assembly, we also 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.
