Parus Pen handmade rollerball pen with rhodium plating and amber resin
Just received the pen today, marvelous, beautiful pen. I own many, many pens, Mont Blancs especially; your pen has a wonderful weight to it; lovely in the hand. Writes well. The cap cedes into base which makes using the pen a pleasure. You should be very proud of your artistry. I’ll be back for another pen very soon."

Ballpoint Pens

Ballpoint pens are available as ballpoint click pens (also called retractable pens) or ballpoint twist pens. Ballpoint click pens have one lathe turned barrel and one-handed simplicity. Elegant ballpoint twist pens can have one or two lathe turned barrels.

Rollerball pens offer the smooth writing experience of a finely tuned fountain pen but with the convenience of standard cartridge refills.  

Rollerball pens are capped pens and available as postable rollerball pens (cap can attach to end of pen while writing) or classic traditional desk pens with a non-postable rollerball pen design.

Fountain Pens

Fountain pens provide a pleasing and often nostalgic aesthetic. Although fountain pens require some care not required of other pen types, they reward their owner with a wonderful writing experience. 

Fountain pens are capped pens and available as postable fountain pens (cap can attach to end of pen while writing) or classic traditional desk pens with a non-postable fountain pen design.

Singular Gifts

Looking for something different? How about a bottle stopper for the wine and spirits enthusiast? Popping open a cold one? Why not reach for a bottle cap opener with 360° functionality? All are crafted with stainless steel and feature tops of hand turned wood or resin — some feature carefully incised insets like coins or stone. How can the outdoorsman "have everything" until you gift them a handmade deer antler whistle?
