Item details



brass, bullet, shell, 21 gun salute, memorial, funeral, salute, in memory, gun, pen, 30 caliber, ink pen, wood pen

Send me your 30 caliber bullet cartridges and I will make them into a pen keepsake.
Includes gift box.

Choose your wood and metal finish for the pen parts.
If you have memory wood that you would like included feel free to send that along as well.
The finished pen will accept standard cross type pen refills. Black ink is included.

Turning a spent bullet into a pen requires machining the shell to be able to accept the pen mechanism. This includes shortening the bullet tip and filing the crimped end. Drilling the primer end and soldering a brass tube inside the casing. Photos of the process are available upon request.

Other woods available upon request. Please message me if you'd like any further customization.

I have been woodworking and pen making for many years. So know that every amount of care and quality will be going into the assembly of your keepsake. But also understand that your keepsake will be modified.

Yes! I grew up in a woodworking environment. My father is a professional furniture maker. I have been making wood crafts for 30 years. All of my items are made by me sometimes with help from my kids. On a rainy Sunday afternoon you can find the whole family in the workshop, painting, staining and sanding wood. My youngest daughter is even learning how to turn pens on the lathe.
All of the wood signs and crafts are finished with a commercial grade oil based finish. Dry time between coats is 24 hours and most items get 2 coats.
All wall hangings are finished with an interior clear finish. This is not suitable for outdoors. If you would like a UV resistant outdoor finish please let me know at the time of purchase. I will be happy to add and outdoor varnish at no additional cost. Remember outdoor finishes require an annual finish application which you would be responsible for.
