    Default ROB EDEN Handcrafted Pens

    Due to a work related incident Im forced to spend time at home since last year March. During some very trying times, I researched a few "bucket list" hobby ideas. Long story short, I started making bespoke handcrafted custom made pens. Fountain, Rollerball, Ballpoint pens & click pencils. All "dressed"with various species of wood. I find standing in front of the lathe creating a masterpiece.

    Herewith some pics of the well over 140 odd pens and items that Ive made thus far. Check my page out on Facebook & Instagram same name as the title or my website at www.robedenpens.co.za

    I will keep updating my pages and periodically on here to.

    Enjoy it!

    Silly question, but can you get refills for the ball point pens and what does the fountain pen use to hold ink ie cartridges or suck up system.

    Hey Hunter; refills are freely available at any decent write/stationary shop. The fountain pens use cartridges or "suck up" style cartridges, just advise on the order and you will receive both.

    Nice work
    Also my past time, still now as I sell at the local market so no sales for a while. Project for lock down is complete cleanup and re organize the garage, halfway through that.

    Just a few of my efforts

    Cheers

    Just had a look again, those pics are from 5 years ago so prices have gone up since.

    Had a lot of success this last season with pens made from wine barrels, they don't look so fantastic but have a novelty appeal.

    Nice work!

    Incidentally -I , just before shutdown, visited a few good woodwork tool shops in CT with a mate of mine.

    (We had resolved to get our 'fix of lekker hardware' before the lockdown -fearing withdrawal symptoms-and we managed to get a few nice goodies at 20% off from BPM (they had 20% off everything on the day before lockdown)

    I was amazed to find that at all the specialist shops ( BPM, Hardware Centre, one other in Maitland), they keep the wood/resin blanks for pen-turning, and the metal pen-parts -and a fairly range/variety and large selection of these to boot.

    I can only surmise that there are a good few pen-turners (?) around, so market will be tight.

    (Anyone of you.... turners-of-pens... using aluminium/ other metals? -could do some amazing and cool tech-y things with the right lathe/cutters/metals

    Heat treatment for colour -before/and/or/after turning -could give some radical results!

    There are very few pen turners that I know off in Cape Town. Whats nice is that every pen turner has his own style of work. There is a company in George that works on metal for pens.

    I prefer to ONLY make bespoke handcrafted custom made wooden pens. Absolutely love it, its kept me sane through some EXTREMELY tough times during 2019 and early 2020.

    I've seen caranx36's (Rob's) pens in person and I can testify that they are beautifully made!
