Proclaim your national pride and love of country with this beautiful exotic burl wood, custom turned patriotic pen. The pen clip features a red, white and blue American flag and handsomely cast Bald Eagle emblem. The pen end features a laurel leaf, a symbol of victory and a popular motif in the Federal style of architecture. The pen top features an etched U.S.A and laurel leaf stamp. Also, on the tip and end are Doric column influenced designs, which appear on many American government buildings and monuments. Finally, God Bless America is intricately etched into the pen band. Excellent weight, balance and a smooth writing performance with a Parker style, easily replaced refill. The brass plating is chemically darkened to simulate aged brass, which results in a gorgeous, long lasting brown plating with golden undertones. The rustic, authentic look of this antique brass pairs beautifully with the burl wood blank. This exotic wood is chemically vacuum stabilized in my shop, turned on the lathe, then finished with an indestructible, high luster coating that will withstand sweat, moisture, and dirt. The stabilization process and finishing technique assures that the wood will always remain beautiful and glossy. 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.
