On a lathe I use hand chisels to turn the bodies of the pens and other items. I used domestic and exotic woods from around the world. I also use resins and acrylics that are used in the most prized pens on the market today. Italian made acrylics; Bakelite, Lucite and Ebonite are just a few. All the metal components of my pens are of highest quality; Titanium-gold, black titanium, rhodium platinum and 22k gold.
