Barry Reifman is a longtime Arizona resident who has been involved with woodturning for approximately 10 years. His main focus is to make beautiful handmade pens, but he has been known to turn some awesome bowls also.
Working on a lathe, Barry starts with a square pen "blank" or a piece of aged wood, and he transforms it into the pens you can see in his showcase. The process takes a lot of patience, and every pen is unique.
The pens are made with different materials and different dimensions. The thicker ones are great for people with larger hands or for people with arthritis.
The pens use a standard Cross refill which is widely available, and they are made to last.
