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 Teak Wood.
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.

TEAK

(Tetona Grandis)

  Teak is the common name for the tropical hardwood species Tectona Grandis and its wood products.  Tectona Grandis is native to south and southeast Asia, mainly India, Indonesia, Malaysia and Burma, but is naturalized and cultivated in many countries, including those in Africa and the Caribbean.  Burma accounts for nearly one third of the world’s total teak production.  The word teak comes from the Tamil (in the Dravidan region) word thekku.  Teak is used extensively in India to make doors and window frames, furniture and columns and beams in old type houses.  It is very resistant to termite attacks.  Mature teak fetches a very good price.  It is grown extensively by forest departments of different states in forest areas. 

  Teak is also used extensively in boat decks, as it is extremely durable and requires very little maintenance.  The teak tends to wear in to the softer ‘summer’ growth bands first, forming a natural ‘non-slip’ surface.  Any sanding is therefore only damaging.  Use of modern cleaning compounds, oil or preservatives will shorten the life of the teak, as it contains natural teak-oil a very small distance below the white surface.  Wooden boat experts will only wash the teak with salt water, and re-caulk when needed.  This cleans the deck, and prevents it from drying out and the wood shrinking.  The salt helps it absorb and retain moisture and prevents any mildew and algal growth.
