The items listed on the continuing pages are all
handcrafted by Montney and Son. We take exceptional pride in what we do to
create that most unique item for you. We hand select each and every piece of
material to ensure it meets our high standards. We are open to requests for
custom products, materials and sizes.
Our writing instruments are created from a variety of woods that grow all over
the world. They are made from a solid piece of wood (blanks) with the grain
oriented to match between the two barrels of the pen or pencil. They are all
hand turned on professional wood lathes. Every blank has its own grain pattern
which makes each final product unique.
The actual pen or pencil devices are made from manufactured kits. We generally
use the Funline pen kit which has 6 different plating's available; Economy Gold,
Chrome, Copper, Gun Metal, Satin Gold and Satin Pearl. We provide the following
types: Ballpoint Twist, Ballpoint Click, Fountain, Pencil, Rollerball or Single
Tube. If you have a special request ask us as there are many other types
available. I order all my materials from Penn State Industries. You can go to their Pen Design Studio and create the type of pen I can make for you. We also use Cross pen refills. They write excellent and are cheap to replace (just pull the pen apart and unscrew the refill).
We make bowls from wood blanks
that range from exotic woods from around the world to familiar local stock. We
also age and make products from trees felled locally. The bowls can be custom
made in a variety of shapes and styles. Each bowl is sealed with non toxic
material so they can be used for edible foods. Each bowl's secret beauty is
contained in the grain of the wood blank.
