& Rollerball - Curly Mango £300
THE BEECHENHURST DELUXE
& ROLLERBALL PENS
Beechenhurst Deluxe is a big step up in quality from
the standard Beechenhurst, and with a few subtle differences in appearance. 24ct gold
plated fittings with added titanium for increased durability, or for something really
special a rhodium plated version. (Rhodium is one of the rare
and valuable metals of the platinum family). The Beechenhurst Deluxe has
a harder, thicker plating than the standard Beechenhurst, and should last a lifetime.
German made two-tone nib with long lasting iridium tip.
All of the Beechenhurst Deluxe pens come with a 2 year warranty, and are
supplied in a velvet covered presentation box.
Each pen is individually hand made by Rodney Neep.
No two pens are the same. They are unique! When you buy a Rodney Neep pen,
you select an individual pen from those currently offered for sale. All
pens come with an individually numbered signed certificate.

#1691 - Beechenhurst Deluxe Rhodium Rollerball - Holm Oak
Holm Oak (also known as Holly Oak) is an evergreen oak tree that
grows mainly in Mediterranean areas. It is quite a rare wood, and
examples showing "flecked" grain are even more rare. I was really
fortunate to be able to obtain just ten pieces of this unusual wood.
This pen is a particularly gorgeous example.

#1680 - Beechenhurst Deluxe Fountain Pen Black Titanium - Black
The very first Beechenhurst Deluxe pen that I have made in
black titanium metal, and only the fourth pen I have ever made using
black palm. Black palm isn't a wood. It is a type of grass! Hence
what you see is "blades" of dark and light grass that are bonded
together in the trunk of the palm tree. This is extremely difficult
material to work with when making a pen, because the fibres have a
tendency to split out when turning it on the lathe, especially as
the material is so thin in the barrels. I have developed a
special technique that helps prevent that from happening by
impregnating the fibres with thin viscosity cyanoacrylate glue to
harden them, but even so, it only works some of the time.
Is the effort worth it? Oh yes! The end result is absolutely
Once this pen has sold I won't make another pen like this
to special order. I just can't guarrantee that I could do it
#1681 - Beechenhurst Deluxe Rhodium Fountain Pen & Rollerball Set -
Probably one of the most beautiful fountain pen & rollerball
sets that I have ever made. Superb highest grade Amboyna burl wood
from thre Andaman Islands in the Indian Ocean. Rare and often
described as the king of all woods.
Rhodium metalwork with a fine gold ring in the centre band.
(Rhodium is a member of the rare platinum family of metals). If you
look closely you will see two subtle fine lines in the body and cap
sections of the rollerball pen so that you can eassily identify it
from the fountain pen when they are in the closed position.
#1694 - Beechenhurst Deluxe Rhodium Fountain Pen &
Rollerball Set - Jasper
Jasper is a stone which is a form of chalcedony, an impure
variety of silica. The name means "spotted or speckled stone", and
is derived via Old French jaspre (variant of Anglo Norman
jaspe) and Latin iaspidem (nom. iaspis).
Healed, fragmented rock produces brecciated (broken) jasper, of
which this is an example.
Although I make the bodies of these pens as
usual on the woodworking lathe with hand tools, I need to use
special tungsten carbide tipped tools to deal with the very hard
stone. The stone jumps into life as it is
sanded and then polished. There are no artificial
finishes. Just highly polished stone.
#1197 - Beechenhurst Deluxe Fountain Pen -
Rhodium - Spalted Elm Burl
Stunning burl wood with swirly grain and
small pippy knots. Rhodium with posting cap.
#1639 - Beechenhurst Rhodium Deluxe Fountain Pen - Damascus
One of the most beautiful and pecial pens that I have ever made.
Rhodium with non-posting cap
#1699 - Beechenhurst Rhodium Deluxe
Fountain Pen - African Blackwood
(Dalbergia melanoxylon) is the primary wood used in the
manufacturing of woodwind instruments - clarinets, oboes,
flutes, piccolos and bagpipes. Mainly becuase of its natural
resistance to condensation within the instrument. It is an extremely
dense wood, and one of the very few woods that will actually sink in
water. One of the heaviest and hardest known woods in the world.
Whilst the species is known as blackwood, the actual colour of the
heartwood varies greatly from black to brown to purple. This piece
is black with some very dark brown grain.
A great deal of concern has been
raised about the over-exploitation of African blackwood and there is
no doubt that demand for the species from the music industry has
been a driver of shrinkage of the species’ range, with commercial
stocks now only remaining in Tanzania and Mozambique, whereas
previously they were found across many regions of Africa. In the
absence of sustainable forestry management programmes, removing all
the commercially valuable trees has invariably led to clearance for
agriculture, which is ultimately the primary driver of the species’
