Handcrafted Pens made one-at-a-time
Each of our handcrafted pens are a one of a kind work of art that can never be duplicated. We hand-turn each of our handcrafted pens one-at-a-time on a lathe without the use of templates or duplicators. Each pen is crafted with care and attention to detail to produce a unique product that cannot be mass produced. All of our handmade pens are designed and manufactured for everyday use but would also add to any pen collection or desk accessory. When a pen leaves my workshop the lucky owner is guaranteed that no one will have the exact same pen. View the steps for making pens to see each step of the process.
Shay Pens is your source for high quality custom handcrafted pens made from exotic wood, acrylic, and other materials from all over the world.
Quality that makes a Difference
We pride ourselves in the quality of our products. Each pen is handmade from quality parts. No portion of our pen making process is out-sourced. We hand turn each product one at a time in our workshop giving each product a dedicated personal touch. We never use duplicators or machines to mass produce any of our products. This guarantees each handcrafted product is unique and custom. This not only assures you that you have received a product made of high craftsmanship but we also make sure all of our products are made in the United States. We choose the best raw materials for our pens from around the world then handcraft them into an elegant writing instrument you will be proud to own. We are western Pennsylvania's finest pen maker and just located a short distance north of Pittsburgh in Kittanning,
Variety of Writing Instruments
We have a wide variety of in stock handcrafted writing instruments ready to be purchased and shipped. If you see a pen style that you like but you wished it had a different body material or finish, no problem. Just select the pen style from our made-to-order section. Choose the same pen style and then select the finish you prefer and the body material you prefer. We will then handcraft you that style pen completely customized for you and your preferences. These custom made-to-order products are handcrafted with the same quality craftsmanship that made our in stock products.
We offer many different styles of handcrafted pens including: twist pens, click pens, cap pens, fountain pens, and dip pens. Our pens use refills that may be purchased at any office store. Depending on the model of the pen they will take either Cross style refills or Parker style refills. The various styles of pens are either rollerball, ballpoint, or gel providing a wide selection of choices based on your preferences.

Your family, friends, and co-workers will appreciate receiving a truly special gift such as our one of a kind handmade pens.
We are able to do bulk orders of pens. Each pen is unique and never will be exactly identical; however, we will try our hardest to make each pen as similar as possible. If you have a need for a lot of pens please email us and let us know how many pens you would like and which model of pen and we will be glad to discuss the details.
We also do commision work were most of the wood is supplied by our clients and we make the pens for them to sale. We have made hundreds of pens for The Timber Guy from reclaimed wood that he has supplied, including wood from an 1885 Coronet Schooner Yacht.
