Created out of the drive shaft of an RAF Tornado Panavia RB199 Rolls Royce engine shaft is this superb  unique pen holder.

Tornado penholder 3

The RAF Tornado pen holder  is fastened on a Walnut base. It comes with a Platinum Stainless steel ballpoint pen. It’s a hefty piece of superbly engineered metal as you would expect from a Rolls Royce manufactured piece. This piece of metal art is mission flown and carries the various marks and abrasions you would expect from that use. Each one has a unique serial number roughly scratched into the base

The screws are brass and the screws and washers were sourced by us and not original to the Rolls Royce drive shaft. The overall height including the base excluding the pen is seven and half inches. The width of the shaft is quite narrow and that is why we have chosen the stainless steel Japanese made ballpoint pen to accompany it. It will probably not fit wider fountain pens. The refill is Platinum SBSP - 80A Hybrid

It is only available for purchase in the UK basically due to the size and packing difficulties. It does not come gift boxed due to the size.

Inclusive of UK postage with a letter on handmade paper describing the item it is 97

concorde keyring boxed

This is the Concorde keyring. A superb piece of metal in complex shapes and each of which is different. Rather than producing a conventional keyring we have tried to preserve an image of what the Concorde stands for in the keyring. Its not a conventional keyring but rather a piece of metal art which can be used as a keyring. Click on the image above to see it. A fine piece of historic Concorde metal utilised as a keyring rather than a keyring made out of Concorde metal.

House of Stewart pen holder

With gun metal finishes and Royal Navy teak is this fine historic pen. The teak was the last of the Royal Navys teak and when the last ship in the Navy was disposed of the teak was of no more use to the Navy. That vessel was the Britannia. We enclose it in a drawstring bag made from Royal House of Stewart tartan woven in a Yorkshire wool mill.
