The 30 Caliber Bolt Action Pen is the most unique when it it comes to the operating mechanism. 
The nib is a jacketed bullet and shell casing, and the top is the back of the casing, including the center fire on the top. The pocket clip is a rifle, but the neatest aspect of this pen is that the bolt mechanism actually operates the nib pushing it out for writing. This is our best selling pen and you will have everybody talking about it!

Koa (Acacia Koa), is the best known endemic tree in Hawaii. The species exists naturally nowhere else in the world. It is recognized world wide for it's remarkable variety of grain figure which ranges from plain to curly to fiddleback. The colors can go from reds to chocolate browns, with the sapwood, sometimes, even a bleached white. It is the figuring that sets koa into a class by itself.
Chatoyancy is a property that is usually attributed to certain gems, the cats eye effect, or shimmer which gives the sense of depth in the gem. This effect can also be used to describe some of the more dramatic pieces of curly, tiger stripe, and fiddleback koa. This figuring gives the wood a three dimensional quality, and, depending on what angle you view the wood, it can take on several completely different characters.
Koa is currently on the endangered species register due to concerns about the habitat it provides for endangered native Hawaiian wildlife.
No live trees are harvested for our koa.

Red maple can only be tapped for syrup before the buds emerge, making the season very short.
