Bolt Action Bullet Pen – Thuya Burr- 2221202


This handmade bolt action bullet pen has a real bolt action which opens the ballpoint pen! No twisting or clicking to do.  Grab the bolt action and slide it down, lock it in place and start writing.  An ideal present for any shooter!

The main body of the pen is hand turned from Thuya Burr which is found mainly in the Atlas mountains of Morocco, but there are sub-populations to be found in Malta and Southern Spain. The colour is generally an orangish or reddish brown, tending to darken with age to a medium to dark reddish brown. It is nearly always exported and sold as burls from the root of the tree, with the plain or unfigured wood of little commercial value. Thuya Burr  is usually used for carvings, veneer, decorative boxes, turned objects, and other small speciality wood items, such as your pen!

Once the body of the pen had been turned down to size and shape it was sanded with numerous grades of abrasive from 240grit down to 1200. A coat of sanding sealer was applied to help obtain a smooth finish by knitting the woods fibres together. This was then lightly sanded again with 1200g before 6 thin coats of Melamine lacquer were applied each being allowed to harded, denibbed and the the next applied.

To change the standard ‘Parker’ typre refill the tip is unscrewed from the body, carefully ensuring the sring is not lost. once removed the new refill is inserted, the scring slid over the neck of the refil and the tip screwed back into place.
