This Gearshift Chrome pen is an ideal gift for any car enthusiast. The mechanism design is based off a five-speed H pattern shifter and can be shifted just like the real thing! Authenticity abounds; The cap features a car tire with a true to life tread and hubcap. The tip features the same tire tread as the cap. The shifter handle includes an etched five-speed pattern. And the industrialized crowbar clip attached to the body with two small screws rounds out the design. Refill fully advances at the front of the shifter and fully retracts at the back of the shifter. Uses a popular Parker style refill.
The acrylic in our pens have been hand mixed and poured in our shop in the Ozark Mountains of Missouri. We design our own colors that are swirled together in a pattern by hand that is both pleasing to the eye and makes each pen one of a kind. We are able to have more control over the patterns, and this gives us an advantage over buying our stock from other distributors.
Each pen blank is selected from our raw materials to complement the pen hardware. We choose the best pattern from a larger block, and size the material down. Then we hand drill the hole for a specific size. Then the pen blank is placed on a lathe, and hand turned to a specific shape and dimension to match the pen hardware. After the turning, the blanks are hand sanded and polished with several different grades of a special microfiber material one at a time. Once a smooth finish is achieved, they are buffed to create a show quality gloss finish. This process takes a considerable amount of time and machinery.
This is all done to provide the highest quality pen we enjoy making for you.
These handcrafted pens make great gifts for a professional, executive, professor, graduation, wedding gift, or anyone who enjoys a fine quality writing instrument.
