Words of Honor

This unique pen offers an unforgettable way to pay tribute to someone, whether in memory or as a gift. Capped off with the brass cartridge of an upcycled bullet, this handsome design was inspired by the 21-gun salute for designer Jason Smith's father, an American Veteran. Finished with a spalted beech wood base, this pen offers a smooth twist handle and a refillable ballpoint tip. Made in Ingalls, Indiana

Exclusively for UncommonGoods

About how he got started in pen making, Jason Smith recalls, "Several years ago, after being laid-off from my job in the construction industry, my uncle brought me into his small Tennessee workshop and said "I'm gonna teach you how to make a pen." I had no idea that weekend visit to the family mountain was going to evolve into the amazing life I have today. Over the years, I've really grown as an artist, restlessly challenged myself to do better and be better - never losing sight of my commitment to provide the best service and the highest quality writing instruments and gifts possible.

    Comments about SPALTED BEECH AND SPENT 50 CALIBER BULLET PEN:

    I ordered two of these pens. They are impressively packaged and with a quality presentation. Excellent workmanship.

    One of these was given as a gift for a gun enthusiast friend and she loved it ! The other for myself.

    I would highly recommend this work of art for gift giving or as a collector's item.

                This pen looks cool, but you can't really use it as a pen. It's very unbalanced and back heavy.

                Gave this to my husband who was/is always a marine and he LOVED it. As mentioned in con section it is on the heavy side, but the cool factor completely outweighs this.
