Question:  What can be engraved on the pens and boxes?

Answer: Names, initials, or inscriptions are popular requests for engraving.  Typically copied logos from the internet do not provide a good quality for engraving so please be sure to send a high resolution file such as an eps. Company logos may require authorization. Sorry, college and pro sports teams are off limits.

Question:  Can the pens be refilled?

Answer:   Yes.  The standard pens can be replaced with a Schmidt or Monteverde style rollerball refills.  They can be found on line or at Office Depot.  The fountain pens are shipped with a converter to draw ink from a bottle.  An ink cartridge can be inserted by unscrewing the neck of the pen and removing the converter.

Question:  How large does the material need to be for you to make a pen?

Answer:  Milled wood needs to be at a minimum 3/4 x 3/4 x 10 inches.  Antlers need to be 1 inch in diameter by 10 inches and as straight as possible.   Tree limbs need to be roughly 12 inches long (30 cm) and 1 1/2 inches (4 cm) in diameter and as straight as possible.

 

Question:  Do you make different size pens?

Answer:  Yes.  The large size measures roughly 5 3/4 inches (14.5 cm) and the small size measures slightly over 5 inches (13 cm).    The larger size is a fairly heavy pen both in weight and in profile.  It is well suited for a desk.
