Hello All!

I am new to the forum. I am a props person working on a local film in Atlanta. I was looking for a list of pen making craftsmen in the area that would be able to duplicate a one-of-a-kind pen we have chosen as a prop for our film.

I can email a pic. Know anywhere I can find a Local list of craftsmen?

Hi,

That looks like it would be very doable. It appears to be a standard Slimline pen done in Olivewood with the custom cross clip and band.

I don't know anyone in your area but it's certainly easy and cheap to mail.

I'd be happy to help you but if you would rather work with someone local, I understand.

Have blessed day!

I'm in the Atlanta area but that hardware does not look familiar to me and to duplicate the wear on the components might take some doing.
I have PM'd Nichole some info and contacts. Both the centerband and the clip are available from Exotic Blanks. The picture from Nichole looks like a silver/chrome clip. Exotic's looks to be gold... Maybe the pen Nichole pictured was originally gold, and just beaten into submission and worn down to the plating :eek:!.

The pen displayed looks pretty "lovingly used..." But would be fun to replicate... A wrench for the nib marks, some 80 grit sandpaper for the weathered finish, a dull spindle gouge for the basic shaping... What FUN! :tongue:

Yeah, I'm sure it's just a standard gold clip that has been worn down. Heck, I've done that myself accidentally with a buffer before. :eek: It looks like the clip has worn down a groove in the top (must be loose) - that would be easy to replicate.

I'd love to know the significance of the pen. :confused:

Hi Nichole. You’re in the right forum to find Georgia pen makers.

Are you looking for one duplicate, or multiple? The trickiest part would be finding a wood blank that is a close blank, especially matching a blank with such nice grain.

What’s your timeline?

Thanks,
