I primarily craft unique personalized custom pens out of burl wood. Burl is highly figured wood–the “funky” growths on trees. Within exists swirls & curls, streaks & rays exemplify Nature’s prized, hidden treasures, waiting to be uncovered for all to enjoy.
Further, my signature line of personalized custom pens are custom made from Black Cherry Burl. They’re some of the most stunning, unique personalized pens worldwide. I create each from a dying or storm-fallen piece of magnificent timber, which I mill entirely on my own–from tree to you, all by me.
Meet The Maker
I log & mill my own wood—save my exotic hardwood & acrylic personalized custom pens. In other words, the crafted handmade pen you are purchasing is quite unique.
My wood pens are literally trees I’ve logged in northern Wisconsin, and from tree felling, to when you open your package, the only person to touch those personalized custom pens has been me. I pride my work in this, as I am the only truly “organic pen maker” I’m aware of.
Moreover, my ability to engrave names, monograms & especially corporate logos is a large part of my business. The personalized custom pens I craft, be it for you, as an everyday carry pen, to the Board of Directors & Senior Executives at large-cap corporations, are the real deal. You’re not paying for the finished product, you’re purchasing a pen with a real story—you’re purchasing “real.”
My resume includes Fortune 50 companies, massive healthcare juggernauts, small businesses & the everyday user.

Most frequent questions and answers
What’s a good pen for someone with small hands?
My Slimline model is your standard, ‘regular’ sized pen. Just like the bulk packages of ballpoint pens you can buy at your local retail store. Though, I pay special attention to fashion the gripped portion of every pen into a shape conducive to both comfort & ease of use.
What’s the most drop-dead impressive pen you make?
Real subjective here! But, I find that the Majestic Fountain Pen in the Gentleman’s Style w/ Rhodium Trim & Black Titanium Accents takes the top spot. Further, for that extra little touch, there’s a Swarovski Crystal embedded in the clip.
What's the difference between the Olympian Elite2 & the Classic Fountain Pens?
The Olympian Elite2 is more a bit larger in both length and width, generally better for those with large hands, or just like to use a fountain pen unposted (the cap not attached to the back/bottom of the pen while writing).
What’s the most ergonomic pen for someone who writes a lot?
My Rollerball Pens are phenomenal for this very purpose. Balanced, with a smooth ink to page delivery yields a comfortable feel coupled with a natural flow as the tip glides across the page.
Both my Classic & Oxford Series are fantastic options. All around winners, they’re streamlined, and right down the center of the plate for anyone–analogous to Goldilocks and the Three Bears–these pens are just right.
You don't list any Rollerball Styles without a Cap. Why is this?
Ink in a rollerball pen is water-based. This makes them prone to drying out. Ballpoint pens are oil-based, and don’t evaporate nearly as readily. In other words, without a solid seal to keep the ink from being exposed to air for a prolonged period of time, they dry out.
Unfortunately this means that twist pens are almost exclusively ballpoint; however, my Squire line is a Gel-Rollerball. In short, it’s a hybrid that allows for a rollerball like transition from tip to paper.
I'm looking for a specific kind of pen not listed on your website. Can you make me this particular pen in your signature burl?
Absolutely. I do this frequently enough that I order nearly any hardware style/trim to customize whatever it is you’re looking for. I’ve even engineered a stylus tipped with 6mm leather cord from scratch for a professor who uses infrared touchscreen devices since these screens are bumpy and rough on regular materials. You name it, I can probably do it!
