Spanning a wide variety of shades, Purple Heart can appear pink, purple, or dark violet, depending upon the curl and oxidation. With a little coaxing, an experienced pen maker can encourage specific shades and expressions from each piece of wood. Applying heat results in dark, dramatic gradients, while filling pores yields a bright, almost reflective finish that sparkles in the sunlight. This wood is incredibly nuanced, and you’ll find each and every model of Purple Heart pen in my shop celebrates a different presentation and expression.

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.

Engraving Options

I’m proud to offer custom laser engraving as an option for every pen in the shop. Engraving costs an addition $5 per item, and may delay shipping by a single day.

Laser engraving involves burning an image or text into the wood body of the pen. This process produces a black engraving. Naturally, a black engraving appears differently on light versus dark colored woods. As a general rule, lighter woods produce more brilliant and contrasting engravings than darker ones. Red, orange, yellow, white and light brown woods all engrave very clearly. Purple, dark brown, and black woods tend not to produce clear engravings, therefore I usually discourage the purchase of engraving for such woods.
