We have a ton of the pens he makes, but I’ve always over the weight and feel of the ones he makes from .308 cartridges.

yeah, i think you did when i posted about the pens i have a while back.

so yeah, Chris, he definitely sells them. both the bullet pens and wood/acrylic/antler/other random stuff that he turns on the lathe. that's his retirement career and he hits gun shows and craft shows to sell them. $20 is the ball park, i can ask if that's what they're going for and can PM you his email if you want to reach out.

talked to him tonight. he said he was selling the bullet pens in this box for $25 shipped.

Image

he also makes shaving stuff, so badger bristle shaving brushes and both mach 3 and safety razor handles.

Image

chris and mark, i'll PM you his email address. he knows you may be contacting him. if you have a preference on hardware (black, gold, copper, silver), let him know and i'm sure he'll accommodate if he can. looks like he has one silver cartridge pen in this picture, but he may have more. usually it's mostly brass but occasionally (i guess) steel.

:salute:

hope you enjoy them. we have a big box full of pens david has made for us (pays to be a relative, lots of gifts). he can make them out of most any hardwood or some relatively unusual materials as well. essentially anything he can turn on a lathe.

Crappy picture, but here’s a pic of our pen box.

Image

Some of the more unusual, lower left is corn cob (one of my faves and my regular EDC). Third and fourth from top right: alligator jaw.

Oh, and Dave, if your wife still draws with lead holders, he’s made some lead holders (both thin and fat lead sizes) for my architect friends.
