Item details

This is a gorgeous twist style BULLET pen made with Oregon Myrtlewood for the top. The once-fired 30-30 rifle casing is made of brass and lightly buffed to bring out it's shine. The top of this pen is a light blond in color with great graining and assembled with gold hardware to accentuate the wood color. The pen in the photo is the actual pen you will receive.

The top of this pen was turned on my lathe then finished with progressively finer sandpaper, all the way down to 12,000 grit! The pen is then sealed to give it a long-lasting mirror finish.

It takes standard "CROSS" style refills available at any office supply store, but even better...I'll include one free refill with this pen! I also inlcude an instruction sheet for changing the ink cartridge and caring for the pen.

Oregon Myrtlewood is a broadleaf evergreen native to Southwestern Oregon and Northwestern California. It grows prolifically in this coastal region. The Umpqua River watershed appears to be the northern boundary of its native habitat and it grows east into the Roseburg area and then south along the riverbanks and in various groves in the hills in the coast range.

The Myrtle tree grows 60'-120’ in the wild. It is very slow growing putting on only 1-12" of growth during each of its first few years. They may take 80-120 years to reach full size.

Oregon Myrtlewood became popular for making gift items back in the early 1900’s. It is a hardwood which takes many finishes well. Coloration, texture and grain pattern in the wood changes greatly from yellowish-brown to gray, black, blond, or brown, with hints of red, blue, and green. Its surface patterns such as burl, swirls, and fiddleback, with the blend of contrasting colors makes this wood one of the single most distinctive and gorgeous in the world. With so many selections of color and grain, it is impossible to duplicate a piece. Therefore, every piece is a one-of-a-kind creation.

In the Bible, the Myrtle tree is of special religious significance, representing fertility and life. Although a larger tree with a little different flower type, Oregon Myrtlewood has a lot of similarities to the Myrtlewood growing in the Holy Land. "Instead of the brier shall come up the Myrtle tree" Isaiah 55:13

A pen of this quality will please any pen collector, executive, or any other aspiring professional. In fact, if you're not 100% satisfied with this pen, just let me know and I'll make it right.

A handmade pen makes a perfect birthday, Fathers Day, Christmas or graduation gift. Handcrafted pens also make great wedding party gifts for your best man, bridesmaids, ushers, etc.
