An Elm ballpoint pen handcrafted with reclaimed HMS Victory wood. Salvaged Elm from an ongoing 15-year ship refit; this is the original wood from the keel. The timber in the ship’s bottom is the oldest part of this great historic Ship.
Construction started in 1759 with laying the keel before finally handing it over to the Royal Navy in 1765 as a first-rate ship of the line. Six hundred trees were used in construction, mostly oak, with some elm seasoned for fourteen years. Seeing four notable actions before the famous 1805 Battle of Trafalgar commanded by Lord Nelson.
This is a quality ballpoint pen hand turned with a hard Ca finish. A single barrel design with chrome top and bottom with gold-plated detail centre band. Wood grain cut on a 45-degree bias for better effect. Twisting the top section extends the black ink G2 refill.
A great HMS Victory Gift is presented in a black-lined presentation box complete with an authenticity certificate.
