Product Information:

Unique, elegant or sophisticated are several words you might use to describe these pen blanks. Tru-Stone Pliable pen blanks are made from approximately 85% natural stone ore that is pigmented and combined with a gem resin. The resin, which is specially formulated for the pen turning industry, allows for higher heat tolerances so the blank is less susceptible to fractures or breakage when using standard woodturning tools. Sharp tools are a must, but when turned and polished the natural stone appearance is stunning. Available in 3/4” x 3/4” x 5-1/2” pen blanks or 1-1/2” x 1-1/2” x 1-3/4” bottle stoppers.


  • Blanks measure 3/4" x 3/4" x 5 1/2"

    Comments about Tru-Stone Pen Blank - Turquoise with Gold Matrix :

    Tru-Stone blanks are very nice as far as color and how they make it. The pens made by tru-stone are absolutely beautiful. I had a couple problems with this though while turning it, This pen blank is extremely hard, chips very easily if you are not careful and takes a toll on your tools. If you tools are not the sharpest you can get them, you will have a lot of trouble. I would recommend having a lathe tool with carbide tip and be an experienced turner. Overall a great product, very smooth finish and good shine.

    Comments about Tru-Stone Pen Blank - Turquoise with Gold Matrix :

    I found this easy to turn. You do have to have sharp tools. Use a brad point drill bit with a backer block when drilling and 900 to 1000 rpm. Take light passes at low rpm when turning, once rounded then crank up the speed. Dont rush it, take your time and finish it by wet sanding to 12000 grit and you wont believe the shine that this produces.

    This product has ended my search for a quality pen blank in stone. I thought it would be cost prohibitive to experiment or find it on the market. Truly a new and exciting aspect to this hobby and gifts for the girls is going to be easy this year.
