What an awesome review I have ahead for you! Professionally handcrafted fine writing instruments by Mike Trobee , founder of “Addicted To Pens. Com” and also Etsy Seller Shop “Trobee Pens”!   

Before I start with the review, I’d like to say THANK YOU to Mike for providing me with the gift of this beautiful pen for review. I know that hours of work was put into creating this pen so I’m extra thankful for it and I will take extra good care of it.    


REVIEW:


The pen I received from Mike Trobee came in a Black Velvet Drawstring Protective Bag.  It is absolutely gorgeous! You can tell without a doubt that it is definitely made with the highest quality materials. He uses high end pen parts to complete the pens. Often times, just by holding and feeling something in your hands, you can get a sense of how well it’s made, and I’m certain this pen will last me my lifetime! 

The pen I received is made with Pink Aluminite, High Quality Rhodium Plated Metal, it is a Ceramic Tipped Rollerball, and embellished with Swarovski crystals to make it extra feminine. 


The pen also came with a Leather Protective Sleeve, which often times, is included for free and is valued at over $15.00.   This is perfect to protect your pen in case you should need it in your purse, which I would highly suggest using if you are going to invest in a high-quality pen such as this one.  It fits nicely inside. 

I also received a top of the line , Rollerball Refill Ink. Each pen also comes with a Certificate of Authenticity, signed my Mike himself.  It’ll have handwritten information about your pen, such as what it’s made of, and also information about how it was crafted, which is important for gift giving so that the recipient in question knows how special their pen really is and that it’s not some common pen off the shelf at some big box retail store. 

A beautiful Solid Cherry Wood Case also came with my pen.  It has small but strong magnets to tightly close the cover shut. The Design of the box did fool me just a little bit, as I thought the back was the front. The cherry wood case will be on my computer desk where I will be keeping my pen inside, away from little baby hands. 

Now a little bit more information about Mike Trobee’s pens. 

Each pen is shaped with specialized tools, sanded, wet polished, liquid polished by hand so that it gives the pen a glass-like surface, and finally diamond polished to achieve a polish that you don’t see on other pens. Now , remember, because it is handmade from start to finish, and not mass produced,  it is without a doubt “ONE OF A KIND MASTERPIECE” pen.  It is made right here in the USA, in a studio in Collerville, TN. 

This shown pen retails for $149.99. Now some of you might think this is an expensive pen, which it is but when you think about the amount of time that is invested in this and the quality of the material used, it is worth every dollar and then some.

We use pens on a daily basis, so why not invest in something extra special? We buy jewelry, watches, clothes, shoes, etc. and we can spend a lot of money in those things!  You deserve a well-made high-quality professional pen!

These pens would make a wonderful gift for moms, dads, grandparents, realtor, doctors, optometrist, a birthday, a college graduate, etc......it’s never ending list.


You can find a variety of different pens at Addictedtopens.com and Etsy Shop “Trobee Pens”, such as: Fountain, Rollerball, Acrylic, Carbon Fiber, M3 Metal, Polymer Clay, Tru Stone, Wood (a classic), and even Snakeskin (which I believe would make a great conversation piece or an awesome gift for the most die hard pen collectors!).

Now, I will end this review by inviting you to enter in the Rafflecopter Giveaway listed below.  

One Winner will get a similar pen (see below) with all of the mentioned accessories above which are: black velvet drawstring case, leather protective case, cherry wood case, and certificate of authenticity.




INFORMATION ABOUT THE GIVEAWAY PEN: Rollerball Pen Coral Amedeo Italian Resin Writing Pen PinkDesigned for discriminating collectors Showcase Grade Collector Pen with Aston leather pen Sleeve and solid Cherry Wood case Rhodium with Swarovski Crystal accents. This rare handmade rollerball pen is made of select alternate pink coral resin . I used only the best of everything available to create a pen masterpiece. If you prefer this pen in a fountain pen instead of rollerball, I can easily change out the front end to accommodate you.

THE MAKING OF THE PEN
I (Mike Trobee) shaped the blank with specialized tools. The result was an almost complete pen body. I then sanded the blank to match exact specifications for extremely superior rollerball pen parts. I then wet polished the coral Italian resin in a multi step process by hand. Next, liquid polish was applied by hand to get a glass like surface. Finally Iused diamond powder polish to achieve a polish that you don't see on other pens.
I used extremely high end pen parts to complete the rollerball pen. The metal is high quality rhodium plated with Swarovski crystal accents. The rollerball I used is German made and ceramic tipped for the best writing experience you can get! This pen is rare and extremely high quality. It is for someone extremely special or for a luxury pen collector.
