This 30 caliber bolt action ballpoint was crafted out of historic colonial shipyard oak and matched with antique brass fittings. The ballpoint is extended by manipulating the bolt action on the side of the pen. This is a perfect gift for any history lover. The pen takes Parker style refills.
Colonial Shipyard Wood:
This 500 year old southern live oak was salvaged from the log ponds located in Boston's historic Charlestown Navy Yard, one of the oldest shipbuilding facilities in the United States.
Southern live oak, known for its strength, was the wood of choice for shipbuilding components in frigates built in US naval shipyards during that era. Harvested in the southern United States, the highly figured and extremely dense timbers helped the famous USS Constitution earn the nickname "Old Ironsides" by withstanding the cannonade during the war of 1812.
