A few more bolt action pens, and a couple of Civil War pens. They are way kool. 58 cal. minni-ball, and the tip is 44 colt. Very kool little card with a bit o history with those. The Civil War pens are made with Honduran Rosewood, and Yucatan Rosewood. I really like the way they both came out. The bolt action pens are Ebony, Redheart, and Cherry. Appreciate the looks and any comments. Thnx fer lookin

Very nicely done. I have the Civil War pen ready to be made with the Flag and have not got the Flag together yet.

Those are beauties, Roger!

I tried to get some wood from the Gettysburg battlefield to make a couple of those pens but the park rangers there frown on pruning their trees.

Beautiful Roger! The cards really complete the story too. I think that the little touches like that give them a nice history and add tremendously to their value. Nice job on them! :)

OK. Enough teasing us, how can I order one? Just tell me how much and where do I send my payment. Seriously, very nice and I really would like to buy one—especially the .58 caliber.
