There's no better way to commemorate someone in the armed forces or a hunter than this writing instrument.
Not only that, it is hand-crafted from Bigleaf Maple Burl, a tree native to Pacific North America. The burl showcases a tan colour, swirly grain, natural imperfections, and a slight hint of spalting. A stunning display of what mother nature can do in a single piece of wood.
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 components are finished in gun metal and are meant to resemble a shotgun shell and the clip is in the shape of a rifle. cast, polished and plated with a durable two micron 22k gold plate and rhodium. The threads at the back of the pen allow you to attach the cap giving you extra length and balance.
The pen is only available in rollerball style and comes with a fine-tipped (0.6mm) ceramic roller refill from Schmidt. The rollerball tip ensures smooth and even lines to your hand-writing. To access the refill, simply unscrew the tip from the middle.
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 Cap' or 'Customize Body' in the customization option and upload an image with your text.
