Like history you can hold in your hand, this heirloom-quality historic wood pen was handcrafted from teak decking of the famous World War II battleship, USS Massachusetts. Removed during its 1999 restoration, the salvaged historic wood is now being carefully hand-turned and hand-sanded into collectible, historical pens.
The USS Massachusetts, also referred to as "Big Mamie", saw extensive action from 1942 - 1946 during World War II: from sinking destroyers off the coast of North Africa, participating in the invasion of the Marshall Islands, to bombarding steelworks in Kamaishi, Japan. Now designated a National Historic Landmark, the Battleship Massachusetts is the centerpiece of the collection at Battleship Cove in Falls River, MA.
Refillable ballpoint wooden pen. Arrives in a protective case along with history card.
Handcrafted in Old Town, Maine.
