Handmade Bolt Action Antler Ballpoint Pen
A handmade bolt action antler ballpoint pen hand turned using a piece of deer antler in my own UK workshops.
Deer antlers shed and regrow each year so this is a natural resource with no animals hurt. The antlers offer a number of challenges, a hard material, expensive, hard to source and finally porous, these challenges have to be overcome to make this pen.
This pen styled upon a bullet and has a high-quality chrome plated trim with a copper plated tip. The ball point advanced by operating the pens bolt-action. On top, a scoped rifle for the pen clip and a copper insert to mimic the percussion cap.
The antler needs mounting on the lathe and hand turned to round and shaped. Once shaped it needs sanding through to 400 grit and then up to 8 coatings of super glue applying. This then needs polishing to 12000 using micro mesh for a super hard and durable high gloss finish.
The bolt action pen will make great handmade gifts for men or women who love hunting, fishing, shooting or any of those other types of outdoor activities.
This pen uses a Parker style G2 medium ball point black refill available from my pen spares refills or any other good stationery suppliers.
All my novelty pens come in a presentation box as standard. Every piece of antler different in shape and colour these pens make unique handmade Father’s Day, Christmas or Birthday gifts.
