ANTLER PENS and selling them at craft shows in
Texas. Since 2003, through this website, I have also gained
customers in 45 states! I
been a woodworker for 40 years and have completed many pieces of fine

years ago and was immediately attracted to the functionality and design
possibilities. Here at Dismore Woodworks, I personally
each and every custom turned pen, starting with the highest
mechanisms and fittings available. This is the most important
thing to consider for the longevity of the pen. You can find less

internet, but you always get what
pay for! If you are looking for cheap, mass produced, promotional
pens for under $10 - then I can't help you. I use only the finest grade
hardware plating available! All
of my creations, even ballpoints, have PLATINUM fittings

I also include a
two year guarantee that equals
that of MONT BLANC® and other big
name pen manufacturers. Some other
custom pen makers use 24K gold or
10K gold plating that will wear off
quickly, usually within a few months of use! I know,
because I made a few of these in 1996 and observed the wear qualities

use a duplicating machine like some
that use a duplicator to turn out 200 pens per day! To my mind,
that's not really hand-crafted. Each of mywriting
instrumentsis turned one at a time, by eye, so no two pens are
quite alike, making them great for collectors. The variations in
color and markings from the variety of exotic woods I choose is
Bethlehem Olive Wood in particular, displays incredible grain patterns

shown at the top of the page: a Twist Ballpoint type wood pen,
and a Screw Cap Gel

or any generic refill that fits Cross® type pens.
Rollerballs use the Pilot G2 gel ink refills.
Refills for both typesare available
in your choice of point sizes and ink colors from office supply stores,
drugstores & Wal-Mart stores everywhere!

custom designed "scoop" towards the tip of the ballpoint shown

anniversary was coming up and I was running out of time. I came across
Roger’s web site and decided that the olive wood pen was the
gift. . I received my order quickly. What a beautiful pen.
great in your hand and has the perfect weight. Roger you
are a great
craftsman and I commend you on your great customer service.
Hi Roger, Just wanted you to know I received the pen and it came
out better than great. I love it and can't wait for his birthday
to get here.
Thank you again, Amanda Cyprus, TX
church was looking for a special good-bye gift for a beloved
minister. How lucky we were to stumble
upon Roger's website!!! After a nice phone conversation
with Roger, we decided to order the pen made of olive wood from
Bethlehem (how perfect is that for a minister?!). Both the pen
and the presentation box are absolutely stunning -- the website photos
don't do justice to Roger's amazing workmanship. The wood grain
is lovely and the pen is a perfectly balanced writing instrument -- a
wonderful combination of comfort and heft. Everyone at
church is so excited to be able to give such a lovely
gift at such a reasonable price. Thank you, Roger, for your
artistry and for your fast and perfect service!!!!
Sincerely, Carolyn, Louisiana
We want to thank you for the gorgeous Deer Antler pen. It arrived
today in a very speedy delivery. It was the most beautiful gift
for our son's recent college graduation and he was deeply touched by
the care and craftsmanship of his gift. The engraving was a
special touch on a date to be remembered. Thank you so much
everyone was very pleased.

The platinum gel pen in "cherry fleck"
celluloid was a big Christmas hit with my wife. She was amazed that my
gift budget allowed me to give her a writing instrument that can
sit side-by-side with the "world-famous" $300+ pen she bought
She loves the color, and especially the
quality, heft, and shape of the pen in her
hand. Thanks much!

recommend engraving the maple gift box instead of the pen itself. For best

Are you a serious
pen collector who will
use only high quality fountain
pens? You may choose any of the CUSTOM WOOD
PENS from the gel/rollerball page, (not the
page) then simply add the fountain pen tip (rollerball upgrade kit)
here. I'll replace the rollerball tip with the fountain pen tip. Tip
will ship "dry" so you will ink it for the first time! It's $95
additional, and includes a solid 14k "585"
medium nib, a bulk ink pump, and starter
at Staples Office Supply as "Allwrite #8004-32"
These solid 14k-585 nibs
over the page with no pressure, and are vastly superior to cheaper
"Iridium tipped" steel nibs. They are hand made by a German
manufacturer who makes 80% of the 14k nibs used by the major pen
manufacturers. The nib is the most important part of a fountain
pen, so it pays to get the very best!
instruments are guaranteed to be mechanically defect free for a
period of two years from receipt of your pen. Should a
mechanical or plating defect
occur, you may return your pen within the two year period for free
repair or a
new replacement pen! Warranty does not cover
or physical damage incurred after delivery like "you sat on it and
broke it, or your child played with it and broke off the clip."
The spring clips will last for years if not abused. They are
designed for use in shirt pockets only - not jeans pockets!
Forcing a clip over thick material will eventually break it off!
