Handcrafted Ink Pens
Posted by: Sataro
Date: October 26, 2016 08:34AM
Making custom ink pens started out as a hobby. I was planning on making a few pens for family & friends. Coworkers started asking if I would be willing to sell them. Now my hobby pays for my metal detector hobby. Here is one of my latest ink pens.

The top of the pen is an exact replica of a 3 ring .58 cal musket ball. The lower end of the pen is an exact replica of a .44 cal revolver bullet shot of the 1860 revolver of that era. The clip represents an 1860 Springfield that shot the .58 cal 3 ringer. The flag represents the Battle Flag of the Army of Northern Virginia, otherwise known as a confederate flag.

This is my latest pen that I made. It is a rollerball ink pen made out of blue stabilized buckeye burl wood.
