Writing In Style is a business started in 2010. My aim is to provide customers with unique writing instruments. Everything I do is driven by the requirements of the customer. The most important thing to me is that when you purchase one of my pens you walk away happy.
My name is Dave Murphy. All pens/pencils are handmade and hand finished by me. I have been working with wood for about 11 years now and have produced everything from pens and pencils through to beds and kitchen cabinets.
Writing In Style is a member of the UK Association of Penturners and also the International Association of Penturners.
What We Do
All of our pens or pencils are made from a high quality components. The main body of the pen/pencil is made from either wood or a man made product (acrylic,acrylester or some other specialist material). The main body is turned on a lathe down to the appropriate size for the pen/pencil. It is then sanded and polished to a wonderful shine (I do not use a CA glue finish on wood as I find that it makes the pen feel as though it is made out of plastic). The pen/pencil is then assembled and any mechanisms fully checked.
Fountain Pens in our executive range are delivered with a Piston Style Ink Pump where available whereas others will be provided with a cartridge. The cartridge will never be pushed in so as not to clog up the pen and to remove the chances of leaks during transit.
Finally the pen will go through a quality check to ensure that there are no issues with it. Although these checks will flag up most issues allowing them to be rectified before delivery there may be occasions where a problem may show up after delivery. Every pen has a 6 month warranty so just let us know what the problem is and we’ll get it fixed for you.
