    Commission pen

    This was ordered by a friend for a former Marine. Paduk...5 coats of CA knocked down with 0000 steel wool on a PSI matte black bolt action. I really love the open grain on paduk and the way it finishes. Thanks for looking

    Nice looking pen for sure and the matte finish goes well. These "bolt action" pen are very popular, although I never understood a cartridge with a bolt action in it. I would think something that looked like a rifle receiver would be more appropriate. I always thought if I had a metal lathe and was good at using it I would try to make one that looked that way.
