My helper in the shop (my 3 year old son) picked out this blank during a trip to the local Woodcraft. There's no way he knew that Independence day was coming up but he certainly loved the red, white and blue colors. He was very insistent that I make a pen for myself with the blank, and so I did. However, I had enough left over to turn this bolt action pen for someone else to enjoy. This is a great gift for any firearms enthusiast and patriot!
All my bolt action pens are now upgradeable with various ink cartridge options. The standard black ballpoint writes great but you can swap it out for blue or even upgrade to gel rollerball inserts in black or blue. If you do upgrade, I'll send along the original cartridge so you have a spare.
As always my pens ship for free via USPS Priority mail. If you choose not to get the (extremely awesome) rifle case gift box, I will ship your pen in a clear plastic tube to protect it.
