Gifts for Civil War Buffs

These pens are a favorite of mine. But that’s probably because I love the history of the Civil War. Like many, I’ve discovered family ties with the war. The individual in the picture above is my g-g-grandfather who was a private and served on Ferrell’s Battery, Ga light artillery for the Confederacy. These pens make fine gifts for Civil War buffs or any american history buffs you may know.

You can make these yourself or purchase one from me. I sell these for $40 (not including shipping & handling). I have a few of these in stock, but can also custom make to order. Use the contact link to email me if you see a pen you like.

The pen tip is a replica 44 caliber Colt Army bullet, and the pen cap is a replica 58 caliber Minie’ Ball. The clip represents a Model 1861 Springfield Rifle Musket. For the pen pictured above, I used Zebra wood.

On my JET mini lathe, I turn a wooden blank to form the pen body. I sand it and finish with a friction polish. Then I press the metal parts of the pen into the wood blank.

If you decide to make this pen yourself, here are the materials you will need:

Civil War Pen Kit

Civil War Pen Bushings

3/8 inch drill bit
