Law, Government, and Politics - Collection

These are not just handsome pens, —  they are a piece of history that you use and carry with you, — as a pen.

Your students — Your teachers — Your History lovers —Your politicians — Your Lawyers — Your ….. how often do they — do we, get to touch, hold, use a little piece of history. This is why I make these — this is their purpose.

Imagine the look on their face when your law and government history loving friend or relative realize what you just gave them. You can be assured that from elementary students and teachers to a U.S. President and First Lady — with law students, Governors, Ambassadors, authors and Nobel laureates in between — my pens have been well received. A state government is so impressed with my pens that they were used as official gifts on multiple international junkets. At a book signing, I was sitting behind the author that had one of my pens when the next person in line saw the pen and with pride, pulled one from his pocket and said “ I have a history pen too, it was given to me as a gift”

So what is so good about these pens?

The Pen

  • The feeling of touching history, that connection to something nourished in the soil of great events. Plus you will find the warmth of the wood in your hand more pleasing than any other material — most people do, and it is a handsome material — subtly grains or dramatically patterned — like people, no two can be exactly alike, so you should look through a number of them to find one that matches their personality (or yours). No matter how often you give them, you will never be giving “the same old pen”.

  • Because of the source, (some of these trees are no longer around) and the time it takes me to make them, they will be inherently rare. 

  • You can write and write, to your hearts content and just replace the cartridge, and even change the color if you like, because I use a Cross© refill in this pen.

  • The hardware has a sealed 24 carat gold finish, alternatives are available, but gold goes with everything and is appropriate to the venerated history.

  • If someday the hardware is damaged, I can replace it.

In addition to the pen

  • The pen comes nested on a little pen pillow in a gold foiled box with a clear cover  with the history documents on display behind. This makes it suitable for presentation and display.

  • Just in case you and yours need to brush up on your history, I include is a 5” x 8” pamphlet, printed on archival quality parchment like paper, giving a brief history related to the Pen, this pamphlet also enhances the display of the pen as it sits in the box.

  •  I include a signed warrant of authenticity for you, with pictures of this, individually numbered pen (for the doubters). On that same document I have spaces for each successive owner to sign, recording the history of this pen into the future. (some day you will be great-great grand something or other who passed this pen to great grand so and so - who passed it on to so and so -who is now passing it on. That is the plan anyway.) Traditions need to start somewhere why not with you?

  • If you or yours should ever need it as proof, I keep high resolution photos of each pen with its unique grain pattern, in my numbered registry of my history pens.

The History

  • With this pen you and yours will be holding and using a history bridge. From the past, in the present, and into the future. It is to be used and inspire, — and then given away to do the same again. Your pen comes from history, you become part of its history, and you pass it on for others to do the same. Your pen has meaning, it retains its meaning, and its succession of owners add to its meaning.

Law, Government, and Politics – This collection has to do with The Founding Fathers that helped shape our legal system, governments, and politics. Pens related to signers of the U.S. Constitution, the Declaration of Independence, and to William Pen for his contribution to law and the frame of government. Thomas pain, involved in two national revolutions, the great explainer, and known as the “Father of the American Revolution” and outspoken political troublemaker in Great Britain, America, and France.
