This handmade pen is the fifth of a small batch of six pens to be made from a cracked Help for Heroes Limited Edition Beretta shotgun stock. It has been commissioned as part of the campaign to raise funds for Help the Heroes. All profits from the sale of these HFH pens will be donated to Help for Heroes charity.
The pen has been made by hand turning a piece of the damaged Walnut stock and finishing it to a mirror polish.The woodwork was sanded six times with progressively finer grit abrasive to create a very smooth surface. The surface is polished to a mirror like shine using 12 polishing steps to create a showroom quality finish All external components are glossy dark gunmetal plated to provide durable and dependable service. The pen is very stylish and shows well in all lighting conditions.
The design is based on the bolt action of a rifle to retract the tip. Replica bullet components form the two ends of the pen, whilst the clip is in the shape of a rifle.This pen would make a memorable gift for any occasion, such as a Birthday, Father’s Day, Christmas, Graduation Day, or Bosses day.
GMK and Beretta teamed up and dug deep for Help for Heroes, commissioning a limited edition gun and donating £100 from every one sold to the charity. Just 100 of the special 687 EELLs featuring a customised Help for Heroes engraving, designed by Bryn Parry, Gun serial number 038 was purchased by a local shooter but unfortunately the stock cracked and needed replacing. This gave me the idea of using it to make a small batch of Help for Heroes pens to raise funds for the charity. The original owner will receive this first pen as a gift. The others will appear on here shortly
The 687 EELL is the top of the line of Beretta’s 680-series over-under shotguns. It features sideplates that act as extra canvas for the lavish hand-chased engraving, as well as a specially-selected walnut stock that gives it a true heirloom quality..
The pen comes with a standard black ink refill and a velvet sleeve. Replacement Parker Style ink refill can be found at most stationers.
You’ll also receive a Certificate of Authenticity with each pen ordered.
