Danbar Pens

Grand Rapids, MI.

     Danbar Handmade Pens & Woodcraft was founded shortly after I read an article on 'Pen Turning'. Intrigued and optimistic, I set out on a mission to outfit my workshop with the equipment necessary to turn pens. Over time, and adding many more tools and equipment than first thought, I established a well-equipped home shop where I spend my time making pens, clocks, custom engravings, acrylic blanks for pens, and working on other projects. After some time, and trial and error, I found a passion -- beautiful, handmade, custom collectible writing instruments to proudly share with others.

     Using various pigments, I color, mix, pour, and cast almost all my own acrylic for my pens. On the very few occasions I don't pour my own acrylic, I always obtain the best materials available. I maintain meticulous attention to detail with a total commitment to perfection and customer satisfaction. My pens go through several stages of inspection and testing throughout the entire process of turning, shaping, sanding, polishing, assembly, and function. I want you to be as proud to display your beautiful one-of-a-kind pen as I am to make it.

     When you buy a Danbar Pen, not only do I guarantee your satisfaction or your money back, I promise you a beautiful, custom, handmade, one-of-a-kind writing instrument, suitable for daily use, the astute collector, or that perfect gift, for that special someone, for that special occasion.

That is the Danbar Promise!
