Caring for Your New Pen
Our wood pens are made natural wood! Some of wood has been stabilized by adding resin and others are dried and turned to shape. Wood is subject to environmental conditions and some care should be taken to maintain the beauty and the stability of the pen barrel(s). Wood can be temperature sensitive, so avoid extreme heat / cold.
We use a number of finishes depending on the look type of pen we create. Don’t use cleaning fluids (acetone, turpentine etc . ) or any abrasive substances on your new writing instrument. The fluids and / or abrasives may damage the finish.
We us many varieties of Acrylics, Plastics and Resins in our pens. The same care should be taken with this material as with wood pens.
While Acrylics are a little more stable when it comes to temperature variations, they more delicate and can be damaged or cracked if dropped or flexed / bent. If the finish dulls you can use a high quality car polish or clear coat polish to buff your pen. Light scratches can be buffed out with automotive scratch remover.
