Own a piece of American History. These Zebra Wood, Burlwood, and Blue Buckeye Wood pens were inspired from a period when correspondence was an art form and craftsmanship was honored.

The civil war style pens are made from replica bullets used in the War Between the States. The pen clip is a Model 1861 Springfield Rifle Musket replica. The Model 1861 commonly referred to as the “Springfield”, was a single-shot, muzzle-loading gun favored for its range, accuracy, and reliability. It fired the 58 caliber Minie’ Ball and had a maximum range of 500 yards. It was the most common firearm used by both Union and Confederate forces. It comes with an authentication card explaining the civil war weaponry depicted.

This pen is full of history, which is why it’s the perfect gift for Civil War enthusiasts, gun aficionados, history buffs, hunters, outdoorsmen and more.

The zebra wood pen uses Goncalo Alves as the hardwood (from the Portuguese name). It is more commonly referred to as Zebrawood or Tigerwood – names that underscore the woods often dramatic, contrasting color schemes. Most commonly this wood is found growing in Mexico all the way into Arizona and New Mexico.  

The burl wood pens uses burl, a wood that is very peculiar and highly figured, making it a prized wood for furniture makers and wood artisans. 

The blue buckeye pen utilizes buckeye  burl, a highly prized pattern of burl eyes, swirls and other figure. Spalting of the wood transforms it from the off white color to a mixture of off white with grey blue or purple. 

The zebra wood pen, burl wood pen, and buckeye burl pen features antique brass parts and operates with a twist of the top.
