This is without a doubt one of the finest pens a deer-hunting enthusiast could hope to make or receive as a gift. The lower barrel features a relief cut engraving of a trophy buck that emulates the engraved scrollwork found on genuine, highly sought after bolt-action rifles. The antiqued plating provides contrast for better visibility of the details. At the other end, a deer mount pen clip with a scope at the tip of the clip rounds out the deer hunting theme. The body and bolt-action mechanism are the same as those on the popular Bolt-Action pen kits and use the same accessories. The antique finish is formulated to simulate a time-worn authentic patina with a charm all its own, adding a sense of warmth and history to your handmade writing instrument. Rose gold slug and striking cap. Gorgeous hunting pen with a fun “bolt action” lever which extends the writing tip.
Antlers are true bone and are composed primarily of calcium and phosphorus. They are dropped or shed and grown anew each and every year. They grow from pedicels located on the frontal bone of the skull. This male deer antler (commonly referred to as staghorn) was collected from the ground and not directly from a deer. It was cut, drilled and worked into a block for turning.
The hand selected piece for this pen were turned by Jack D. Ciallella on a lathe. It was sanded through twelve grits of sanding until perfectly smooth. A final multi-coat finish of cyanoacrolate (”CA” Superglue) was applied, then buffed until shining beautifully. This method of finishing gives your pens the most durable exterior possible and a glisten that will last for many years.
On this particular pen, the finish was intentionally sanded through in a large area allowing you to actually FEEL the natural antler, while still maintaining an extremely smooth finish throughout.
