Meet Your Maker

Have you ever thought about the craftsmanship and engineering process of the writing instrument you use? I hadn’t either, until my brother and I started making pens in 2013! My grandfather, a master woodworker, suggested the idea of purchasing a lathe to make smaller projects and that is how The Pensmiths came to fruition. Since that suggestion, we have gone on to make hundreds of pens, pencils, and other projects.

Our favorite part of the pen making process is creating the resin blank because it allows for endless combinations. A “blank” is the resin portion of the pen that gets shaved down, sanded, and polished into the barrel of the finished product. We use premium urethane Alumilite resin in combination with hundreds of dyes and pearls to create unique color selections for our blanks.

We want The Pensmiths brand to be known for innovation and industry leading customer service. Joining the maker community has been incredibly rewarding and has allowed us to connect and collaborate with people all over the world. We can’t wait to partner with you on your next project!
