This handmade bolt action bullet pen has a real bolt action which opens the ballpoint pen!
No twisting or clicking to do. Just grab the bolt action and slide it down, lock it in place and start writing.
Any shooter will appreciate how this pen works and it will be the talk of the town.
During a recent stay at Belle Tout Lighthouse the assistant manager showed an interest in my bolt-action pen designs and subsequently placed an order for one.
During that stay I spotted an interesting piece of wood in the log basket. I later discovered it to be Hawthorn. An unusual wood for turning, but such pretty colours with a contrasting creamy sap wood. I suggested using the Hawthorn for the commission to make it even more personal!
What a perfect gift idea!
The replica .30 calibre bullet cartridge and the chrome bullet tip both add authenticity to the look of this pen.
The pen has been made by hand turning a piece of Hawthorn branch to shape and size before being sanded six times with progressively finer grit abrasive to create a very smooth surface.
It is then polished to a mirror like shine using 12 polishing steps to create a showroom quality finish.
All external components are glossy gold plated to provide durable and dependable service.
The pen is very stylish and shows well in all lighting conditions and will make a memorable gift for any occasion, such as a Birthday, Father’s Day, Christmas, or Graduation Day.
The pen is supplied with a black Parker type refill, available at most stationers
A Certificate of Authenticity is supplied detailing serial number, materials used, and day of creation.
If you are interested in multiple pens, please contact us. Since each pen is a unique work of art, exact duplicates are not possible but we will do our best to create duplicates of the pen, using the same wood and finish.
Point of Interest: The driftwood in the photograph was collected from Birling Gap close to the lighthouse.
