PITTSWOOD

Handturned Pens & Leathercraft

Welcome to my 'Special Pens' !

These hand-turned pens are made from wood that have a historic or interesting background.

Listed below are woods I have available with a brief description.

Click on the images or 'Read More' to see their respective pages which contain full details along with a choice of pen styles.


As you can imagine, the wood supply for these pens is very limited indeed, so once they’re gone, they’re gone!
