my 25th anniversary of crafting the highest quality custom
Roger, I received my Holy Land olive wood pen today, and it is simply beautiful. I've carried wood pens for years, the last one (a lovely Maple pen from Scotland) was unfortunately lost in a recent move. I am over the moon to now have such a fine new piece to carry, and it writes superbly to boot! Thank you very kindly for your fine art, sir.

church was looking for a special good-bye gift for a beloved
minister. How lucky we were to stumble
upon Roger's website!!! After a nice phone conversation
with Roger, we decided to order the pen made of olive wood from
Bethlehem (how perfect is that for a minister?!). Both the pen
and the presentation box are absolutely stunning -- the website photos
don't do justice to Roger's amazing workmanship. The wood grain
is lovely and the pen is a perfectly balanced writing instrument -- a
wonderful combination of comfort and heft. Everyone at
church is so excited to be able to give such a lovely
gift at such a reasonable price. Thank you, Roger, for your
artistry and for your fast and perfect service!!!!

I love it!!!! Paul, Malvern, AR
Thank you for the care and attention to detail you obviously put
into the creation of every pen you make. The specially engraved
deer antler pen I received from you is a true work of art. The
pen was the centerpiece of an evening honoring a close friend of mine
and everyone in attendance made sure they had a close up look and were
I look forward to, and have every intention of
being, a repeat customer of yours.

Roger Dismore, We
want to thank you for the gorgeous Deer Antler pen. It arrived today
in a very speedy delivery. It was the most beautiful gift for our
son's recent college graduation and he was deeply touched by the care
and craftsmanship of his gift. The engraving was a special touch on a
date to be remembered. Thank you so much everyone was very pleased.

Roger, "I have a Bethlehem Olive Wood ballpoint pen, which has a beautiful grain, handsomely finished and very comfortable to hold. It came with a certificate of authenticity and an exceptionally nice maple case. Mr. Dismore is truly a fine craftsman."
Duncan, Ashland, Ohio
I found your site just by browsing and I am very glad I did! I ordered an Olive Wood pen as a gift however I wanted to check it out first. When I received it (promptly) I felt the maple box and pen with my hands and was amazed at the smoothness. Then I picked up the pen to write with and I loved the heft and grip. The platinum hardware is eye catching and finally the pen writes extremely well. I will most certainly be contacting you again for additional pens.
"I received an olive wood fountain pen as a gift when I was ordained a minister. I had never before used a fountain pen, but I was soon converted. The nib is of an excellent quality, and the wood is so lovely and unique, I receive comments about my pen on a regular basis. I enjoy the pen so much, I now detest using almost any other pen. I recently ordered a similar olive wood fountain pen to give to a friend as an ordination gift, knowing that he will enjoy it as much as I have enjoyed mine. Every minister should have a good pen!" Rob, Dallas
"As a pastor and author, I wanted to add a little flair to my signature. I sign my name a lot! LoL I thought the Thomas Edison pen would add a touch of distinction and class to my book signings. Such an unbelievably beautiful pen, and Roger is a genius with wood! At my last book signing, I got almost as many compliments on the pen as I did on the book!"

"Roger, I want to thank you so very much for all your help with the deer antler pen order. My frantic call to you on the Thursday before Christmas was met with a positive and reassuring voice. My pens arrived overnite, and thus my Christmas gifts to husband and son-in-law were successes. Needless to say, working with other online sellers proved to be a disaster. My pens had been ordered elsewhere on line ,and when they didn't arrive in a timely manner my investigation turned up the fact that the pens were never ordered because they were out of stock. My check,however, had been cashed. Anyway, I know now where to shop for future merchandise. I thank you for your efforts at the very last minute. For those of you reading this testimonial.....Roger Dismore is the person you want to handle your transactions!" Margie Spring,TX
"A finely-crafted, functional work of art,a pen by Roger Dismore is in another class from other wooden pens I have encountered. If you can bear to give one away, you will be proud of your gift."
Krista Ravenscraft, Pen collector and aficionado, Saint Charles, ILL
"I have received many complements on the pens from my colleagues. It is difficult to find gifts with mass appeal. When you see the pens actually being used that is true testimony to the unique quality and appreciation of these custom pens." Many thanks, Nick G, Kings Park, NY
"Just received my pens and they are absolutely beautiful. I can tell the workmanship that went into each of them. I am already working on my ideas for a special custom pen and I am sure I will be purchasing more in the near future."
Karen, Las Vegas, NV
"These pens are not just beautiful
but a joy to write with.
You will love your Dismore pen."
John Pettitt, Madison, WI
"As a pen collector, I
purchased many of Roger's pens for myself as well as for friends and
members. I have found them to be extremely comfortable and can
lots of abuse and still look great. I will definitely be
more as he continues to expand the selection of woods that he offers."
Your very pleased customer,Terri (Texas)

with the quality, the workmanship and the beauty of the pens. What's

received my pen today and it was everything I expected and
more. It is beautiful and received before Christmas. Thank
your prompt service and wonderful workmanship"
received the pen you
hand-crafted for my brothers Christmas present. I must say, when I saw
it, I was without words. The texture, color and grain of the olive wood
is impressive and striking. To craft such a beautiful and fine
instrument as this by hand is beyond me. Your craftsmanship to turn
and hand make such a piece is nothing short of amazing ! I am MORE
than satisfied with it, and be assured, there will be more orders from
me. The engraved box is beautiful as well. Thank you sir, for a most
spectacular, fine crafted gift to give. I am so greatful.

Roger,I started my
day realizing that my original waterman pen that my wife and I
sign our marriage certificate was broken which was sad
loved to use the pen every day. Then I started
using Google to search for a replacement pen when I stumbled
your site. After an email exchange and answering all my questions
phone I ordered 2 pens from you. I can say without a doubt that
are of quality workmanship and when I sit in many meetings people are
asking to see the pens. From there I just provide them your
order their own pen. Also, you are correct on how easy it is to get
replacements for your pens because I have to do that already because I
so often. I will definately be back for more pens in the future.Thanks again for all your hard work.
Roger, I've owned a number of
good pens through my career, but the one you just crafted for
me in Texas Ebony excedes all expectations. The weight and grip
are perfect, as well as having a subtle panache. I can't wait for
people to ask me about it! Thanks for great work.
We recently purchased four pens to
give as company gifts to
Japanese business leaders as a memento of fine American craftsmanship.
The pens we received from Mr. Dismore were so phenomenal, artistic, and
beautifully hand crafted that we purchased eleven, not only for
prominent business guests, but for family members as gifts. Not
was the product far beyond expectations, but they were mailed promptly
and on-time...something quite unusual today.

My first pen order for two Bethlehem rollerball pens were
gifts for my wife and a niece that is going off to college this august.
They love their pens and they are absolutely beautiful. It is the most
comfortable pen my wife has ever used. When we recieved these two pens,
I then ordered three more that same afternoon: Two Bethlehem
rollerballs, one for a nephew starting college in august, the other
goes to my grandaughter also starting college in august. I also ordered
an Ancient Kauri rollerball for myself. You E-mailed me letting me know
when the three pens would be shipped and all three would have your new
platinum rollerball parts. You were right Roger, We love these also,
and I personally love the gold accent even more. This new pen is
already my favorite, I am a Business Manager and probably have a pen in
my hand at least six hours every day, My wife and myself both buy
things via the internet, both personally and for work, and and your
personal touch via your E-mails, from the time our order was placed
until we recieved our pens, could not have been better, your service
goes right along with your wonderfull Craftsmanship. Thank you,
Bob, Moorpark, CA
P.S we will be getting more pens for gifts."
I would like to thank
you personally for the exemplary service you provided on my recent
order for a Bethlehem Olive Wood Ballpoint Pen. I ordered this
a gift for a friend. It arrived in perfect condition just a few
after placing my order. I received emails from you when you
my order and then again when you mailed out my order to me. Old
service and on the internet too. It is indeed rare in today's
receive such personal service as you provide to your customers!

"I have bought 2 dozen pens from Roger and every one of them is a delight. Roger is ever willing to try out new ideas and work together through the many eMails back and forth with me to achieve the desired results - simply amazing pens are the outcome. You may have seen some of the pens in his gallery of custom pens. Just to think that I started with one single order to try out Roger's workmanship." - YY Kwok, Singapore.
just wanted to let you know how happy I am with the tulipwood and
afzalea rollerballs. I converted the afzalea pen to the rollerball as I
have a number of fountain pens with nibs that suit me really well (I
like a fine or extra fine nib – mediums are too wide). The pens write
beautifully with the Pilot gel ink. I have gotten many questions and
compliments regarding these two pens and have passed your business card
on to several people. I admit to being hooked on your rollerballs now
and will soon order another one. I just wanted to say thanks.
Cheers, Russ Ashland, VA
I just wanted to say thanks for a great product and most of
great service. I purchased an olive wood pen as a gift for my father
and have to say your description doesn't quite do it justice. The pen
is absolutely beautiful, the grain is very delicate and works well with
the shape of the pen. In addition it feels very good in hand. I was
pleasantly surprised by the quick delivery after I placed my order, the
pen was here in 2 days."
Rob Molbile, AL
Good Day Roger,
I received the pens. Beautiful! The Texas ebony is much
than the picture and it is "ALL AMERICAN". In looking around, you
the only pen maker who offers a custom pen that uses the Pilot G2 gel
refill. I favor a fountain pen for personal correspondence but
the G2 for checks and business signatures and also while traveling.
The fountain pen writes as if it is on glass and rides lightly in the
hand. Wonderful. I look forward to my next pen from you.
Larry, Palmyra, TN
The platinum gel pen in
"cherry fleck" celluloid was a big Christmas hit with my wife. She was
amazed that my gift budget allowed me to give her a writing instrument
that can sit side-by-side with the "world-famous" $300+ pen
she bought years ago.
She loves the color, and especially the quality, heft, and shape
of the pen in her hand. Thanks much!
