Shell Casing & Cocobolo Pens
The little company in Texas that makes these unusual pens is a superb example of the small American businesses that we strive to support. This is a small wood turning operation, which was very young when we first found their turned rosewood wine bottle stoppers. As time has passed, the creative thinking of the owner has added unusual writing instruments created from spent shell casings to his line of products. Assembled in the U.S.A.
.30 Caliber Bullet Pen
The .30 caliber bullet, which began life in the late 1800s, is instantly recognizable, even when it is part of a writing instrument.

Twist action roller ball mechanism, medium point, and black ink. Measures 5-3/8". Uses standard Parker refills found in most office supply stores.
