VAN HORN ENTERPRISES

CREATING TREASURES FROM WOOD

 

Custom Pens


Pens on this page are hard to categorize as you will see as you review the selection.  Some of the pens took their inspiration from a specific area of the US such as the Texas/Cowboy pen and the Southwest.  Others were inspired by special interest like the"Four Speed" pen you see pictured at the left.  Others connect to a special interest like Steam Punk.  For those of you not familiar with Steam Punk it is related to 1900's Victorian era science fiction from the days before we have the internal combustion engine.  A well know example is the book by Jules Verne titled "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea".  These make unique gifts if you have a friend or family member that has special interest in one of the areas inspired by these custom pens.

This is a heavy pen and it writes well.  It is not well suited for a shirt pocket pen due to its weight.  If you know individuals that are into Steam Punk we are confident they would be thrilled with this beautiful pen.  This is one of our most distinctive pens that has appeal beyond Steam Punk followers.

FIVE SPEED GEARSHIFT PEN




This is the perfect pen for shade-tree-mechanic or NASCAR fan.  What may appear to be a flaw in the gear shift knob is actually a self portrait.  You can see me behind the camera and the ceiling fan in my photo studio (also known as our guest bedroom).  Actual the self portrait was intentional as my way of getting a little recognition for my amazing contributions to VHE.  I am convinced people do not read the words on these websites and just look at the pictures so I may as well claim well deserved credit at every written opportunity.

The pen end cap represents a spare tire complete with tire tread and hubcap.

The pen comes in Chrome which is shown in the photos above.  It also comes in Antique Pewter and Antique brass.

Cost : $47.00 free shipping

SOUTHWEST PEN



This beautiful pen was inspired by the American Southwest and the Indian jewelry made with turquoise.  The geometric pattern represents the pattern seen woven baskets and pottery in Southwest Indian art. Van Horn selected woods that compliment the pen and aligned the pattern on the wood to match and compliment the structure of the pen.  Note how the wood pattern around the clip compliments combine to give a striking look to the pen.

Price: $65.00 with free shipping.
