Beautiful custom cast, multi-color resin and Cholla cactus hybrid stainless steel bolt action pen!! All of the work to create this beautiful pen blank is done in my shop. First the cholla cactus wood is chemically vacuum stabilized and heat treated, then the resin is mixed, colored, and pressure cast around the wood. After these steps are completed, the piece is turned on the lathe, then finished in a durable, moisture and dirt resistant finish. This is a modern interpretation of the popular bolt action pen. Designed as an everyday carry pen to feel great in the hand; with a slim, lightweight and well-balanced body that you will not want to put it down. Features a bolt action pen clip that acts to advance and retract the refill. As you move the bolt clip, the internal moving bolt travels with it and pops out the end of the pen when you retract it. You also have a second way to advance and retract the refill by easily pushing the end of the popped-out bolt in and out. Precision-cut knurl finish on the tip and end provides a comfortable feel and writing experience. Crafted with raw materials with a stainless steel clip for tough durability that won’t break or show the wear and tear of daily use. The refill is the standard Parker style and is easily replaced. This is a unique one-of-a-kind custom turned, custom crafted heirloom pen that will make a great gift or will be a lifetime personal cherished piece that will definitely catch the attention of your friends and family.
