There's no better way to commemorate someone in the armed forces or a hunter than this writing instrument. Simply pull the lever and write away!
Crafted from a Maple tree that has lived and died in Goderich Ontario. This particular maple tree has a miriad of colours, shades, and textures. For this particular writing instrument, the piece of wood displays the amazing colours around a knot in the tree.
The pen's wood body has a barrel shape and is finished with Pure Tung Oil and Carnauba-based Wax. The Tung Oil penetrates the wood to emphasize the grain and colour. The oil does not contain artificial thinners or cure-accelerants and is approved for food-contact items. The Carnauba-based wax forms a light 'skin' finish which serves as an additional layer of protection. The combination of the two finishes emphasize the beauty of the wood while preserving its natural feel.
The hardware has a gun metal finish and is made to resemble a gun cartridge. The clip is also made to resemble a rifle.
The pen is available as a ballpoint and takes on a standard Parker style refill. To access the refill, simply unscrew the tip. Make sure you retain and install the spring on the new refill.
Customization for this pen is available. Customization comes in the form of an inscription of up to 5 words that will be burnt onto the wood in one or two lines matching, as closely as possible, the font you provide. To have your pen customized, simply select 'Customize Body'.

Note: the weight is in grams; the dimensions are in millimeters and shown as length of closed pen by height of pen with clip by largest diameter of the wooden body.
