The Civil War pen is inspired by the era when correspondence was an art form and craftsmanship was honored. With a remarkable detailed Model 1861 Springfield Rifle Musket Clip, a replica 58 Caliber Minie' Ball pen cap and 44 replica Caliber Colt Army bullet on the pen tip, this pen captures one of the most important times in our nations history.
 
Model 1861 Springfield Rifle Musket (Replica Clip)
 
The Model 1861, commonly referred to as the "Springfield," was a shingle shot, muzzel-loading gun favored for it's range, accuracy and reliability. It fired the 58 caliber Minie' Ball and had a maximum effective range of 500 yards. It was the most common firearm used by both Union and Confederate forces.
 
 
58 Caliber Minie' Ball (Replica Cap)
 
This was the most widely used bullet in the Civil War. Originally a French army bullet, it was officially adopted by the Americans in 1855. Rings were added to the original design to help ease the bullet down the barrel as well as to collect powder residue when fired. First used in the Model 1861 Springfield Rifle Musket.
 
44 Caliber 1860 Colt Army Revolver Bullet (Replica Tip)
 

This bullet was used in the 1860 Colt Army Revolver, the favorite side arm for cavalry, infantry and artillery troops. It was the most widely used handgun of the Civil War. This revolver was a six shot model allowing the user to fire six times before needing reload. The bullet was designed for the gun's round barrel.
 

Turned on a lathe, sanded and finished, all by hand, with four coats of polish, creates a beautiful shine that brings out the natural beauty of this Cocobolo Rosewood. The finish is
 water proof, high gloss, non-toxic and non-flammable after drying. Over time, the oils from your hand will enhance this finish and the wood may darken.

 
I do not use duplicating equipment in any of my work. Each item is handmade one at a time. Therefore, even with like woods, with their unique and varying grain patterns, no two pens will be identical. This pen is truly one of a kind.

I take custom orders.  If you do not see what you are are looking for, message me to have a pen, or any other item, custom made.

Cocobolo Rosewood

Cocobolo is a tropical hardwood of the tree Dalbergia retusa from Central America. Only the heartwood is used: this is typically orange or reddish-brown in color, often with a figuring of darker irregular traces weaving through the wood. The sapwood (not often used) is a creamy yellow, with a sharp boundary with the heartwood. The heartwood is known to change color after being cut, lending to its appeal.

Cocobolo is oily in look and feel. This oil lends a strong, unmistakable floral odor even to well seasoned wood and occasionally stains the hands with prolonged exposure. Standing up well to repeated handling and exposure to water, a common use is in gun grips and knife handles. It is very hard, fine textured and dense, but is easily machined, although due to the abundance of natural oils, the wood tends to clog abrasives and fine-toothed saw blades, like other very hard, very dense tropical woods. Due to its density and hardness, even a large block of the cut wood will produce a clear musical tone if struck. Cocobolo can be polished to a lustrous, glassy finish.
