My handcrafted premium Nautical twist wooden pen in a beautiful piece of the original Teak decking from the USS New Jersey hardwood is trimmed in a beautiful and complementing engraved and embossed Antique Copper finish.  This attractive, premium twist pen features a Nautical Themed cap with a compass, Anchor clip and Sailing ship engraved nib. The cap finial is crafted into a ships compass. This handcrafted premium ball point pen is from my Nautical line of fine writing instruments. The pen has an excellent twist mechanism and a unique, fine styling.  This ball point writes extremely well having great balance and hand feel designed into it, and is a pleasure to write with.

The teak in this pen is from the 2014 - 2015 overhaul, which is part of the original decking. The USS New Jersey (BB-62) is an Iowa-class battleship, and was the second ship of the United States Navy to be named after the US state of New Jersey. She was often referred to fondly as "Big J". New Jersey earned more battle stars for combat actions than the other three completed Iowa-class battleships, and was the only US battleship providing gunfire support during the Vietnam War.  She is currently moored in the Delaware River at Camden NJ as a not-for-profit entity as a museum.

During World War II, the New Jersey shelled targets on Guam and Okinawa, and screened aircraft carriers conducting raids in the Marshall Islands. During the Korean War, she was involved in raids up and down the North Korean coast, after which she was decommissioned into the United States Navy reserve fleets, better known as the "mothball fleet". She was briefly reactivated in 1968 and sent to Vietnam to support US troops before returning to the mothball fleet in 1969. Reactivated once more in the 1980s as part of the 600-ship Navy program, New Jersey was modernized to carry missiles and recommissioned for service. In 1983, she participated in US operations during the Lebanese Civil War. She was decommissioned for the last time in 1991.

My pens are great for personal use or as an exquisite gift for that special someone, birthday, wedding, anniversary, client, guest, holiday, etc.

This is a beautiful pen design and style can be handcrafted with a variety of wood and acrylic finishes.  

This is a one of a kind wooden pens made from premium historical teak decking I select. This pen makes a great gift for the sailor in the family!

Included with the pen is a Certificate of Authenticity from the USS New Jersey Trust. These former deck pieces make outstanding pens.  You can now own a piece of history.  As you can see from the pictures, the deck has that well worn coloration of deep chocolate Teak with beautiful graining.  Quite exceptional!

All my pens are hand turned by me on my lathe and undergo a minimum 18 step finishing and polishing process to bring out the fantastic color tones embedded within in the teak hardwood.

                                      My Custom Handcrafted pens make excellent gifts!

I do not use inferior woods, acrylic formulations or pen mechanisms in any of my pens or pencils or other turnings!

This wooden pen is handmade as a premium ball point trimmed in an Antique Copper finish and uses a Parker style of ballpoint refill.  Refills are readily available at stationery stores everywhere, or through my website.  This is a highly polished and exquisite pen and requires little maintenance to retain its high gloss and beauty.
