Click-Stache Ballpoint Mustache Pen

Mustache-Lovers Unite!

Some of you may have noticed recently the popularity of mustache related items, from glasses, coffee mugs, straws, stickers, and the  like… all in the name of making it look like you have a mustache on your face.  Why, because mustaches are HIGH-Larious!  But not just regular mustaches.   They need to be large and fluffy, or long enough to be contorted and held into various shapes.  This is the Holy Grail of mustache awesomeness.

There is an almost cult like following with mustache lovers, and you either love mustache’s or don’t understand the crazy at all – a sign of any good niche.  Well, we are here to embrace your love of mustache’s and provide you with an extremely high quality ball point mustache pen that looks great and meets your mustache needs.   This is a exclusive! You will not find a pen like this ANYWHERE!

We like to refer to this product as the “Click-Stache”.

The Click-Stache is a ballpoint click pen that features simple lines and details, high quality Rhodium plating, one-handed click action, and takes a standard parker style ball point refill. The body of the pen is made from a hardwood called Holly, and the mustache itself is made from dyed maple. The mustaches are laser cut, hand assembled, and hand turned on a lathe. No cheap plastic parts or stickers here!

While using your pen at work you can quickly hold it to your face using the mustache to disguise yourself from annoying coworkers and angry bosses. Or use it to add some mustache sophistication when the need arises. Don’t be left without one!

We are offering a per-order sale right now on Etsy – get it now before the price goes up!


Wood Pens… the monster at the beginning

A sampling of some of the various pens that we can make

Hello once again.  We are now officially a few days into the new year and all the Christmas decorations are coming down and we are preparing for 3 months of a bitter cold and snowy Michigan winter with no work free Holidays in sight!

So I thought I would take a minute to showcase the item push me over the edge and down the path that we are on right now.  That is these hand turned wood pens!  I will go into deeper detail on different styles another time, as there are many of them with a wide range in cost.  Pens make great gifts for groomsmen, graduates, doctors, pastors, and anyone else that still uses old fashioned paper to write on.

Cocobolo gold slimline pen with cross clip.

Pen’s peaked my interest because they don’t use a lot of wood so it gives people the chance to use and see woods they otherwise may never know about.  For example, the piece of cocobolo I’m holding in the last post had a retail price of almost $20 on it… and that isn’t a very big piece of wood.  But cocobolo for pens can be very affordable, and beautiful (see picture on the right)!  So because of this I was able to experience dozens of woods from all around the world and put them into the hands of people that had never heard of them.

But being a woodworker at heart and seeing all the natural beauty of exotic woods, I couldn’t just stop at doing pens….

Until next time,
