Description

This is a listing for a pen made from a genuine .50 caliber machine gun casing. The wood portion of this pen was made from a piece of dyed plywood called colorwood. Colorwood is thin plys of wood, dyed to various colors and then glued together to form a solid piece of wood. It turns and works just like normal wood. For an example of the density of this plywood, gun stocks are typically made of this material. These pens have been made from a variety of colors as seen in the pictures. I gave each of rht 4 pens 3 pictures. Most of the pics are close-ups of the wood, because the brass end is pretty much the same on all of them. The first picture shows the entire pen so you can see what they look like. The last picture shows the back end of the pen, showing the fired primer of the .50 caliber machine gun casing. The rest of the pictures show the wood of the pens from different angles so you can see the variation in the wood grain. The pen is just under six inches long with the writing tip retracted and the "bullet" end twists to extend or retract the writing tip. It takes Cross-style refills available at office supply stores. The "bullet" was turned on my lathe, then sanded to 600 grit, then finished with a sanding sealer then finally with a wood friction polish. This would be a great pen for a gun enthusiast or military member, or someone who just likes unique pens. Definitely a fun conversation piece! I left the brass casing natural to show the patina that will build on the casing but a bit of brass polish and they become very bright brass colored.

Please note that I'm in Sioux Falls, SD and so any local pickup would need to be here. My family has been making crafts and selling them at craft shows for over 30 years. We have met lots of fantastic people during that time. This is the first time we've set up at a virtual event so I didn't know how to display my items. To that end, I placed several similar but different items under most of my listings. So if an item looks interesting, please take a closer look at the page for that item because you may find just what you want hiding in the variations.
