Executive Rollerball Pen, Swirled Alumilite with Rosewood Display (166)
As a member of the International Association of Penturners, Elder Pens often gives financial support to the organization through auctions and fundraisers. Last year, we purchased several alumilite "pen blanks", which are hardened blocks of hand-poured alumilite resin that can be later used for carving. We purchased three in total, and one of them was used to make this spectacular rollerball pen. The final product was so breathtakeing, we knew we had to pair this pen with one of our upgraded Rosewood Displays.

Finish: Gloss – The crystal-clear gloss finish holds several distinct advantages over the satin finish. It is much more durable, and will never need refinishing. It provides a clearer, better lens for light-colored woods and layered woods of contrasting colors. For intricate designs with inlay or small pieces, the gloss coating acts as a barrier to prevent small parts from separating. The “smooth” option guarantees an ultra smooth finish, achieved by a two-stage finishing process with cyanoacrylate, sanded to 12,000 grit, then waxed and polished.
