Utile is an African hardwood and a sustainable alternative to mahogany. It is often used for boatbuilding and musical instruments. Here, I have used it to turn this chrome-fitted pen. The wood has been polished to silky lustre using shellac based compound.
The pen is well balanced in the hand and writes very smoothly, using a ‘Cross’ pattern refill, replacements being readily available.
Please note that at present all my pens are made to order. Thank you
