Pens & Swords

While the pen is said to be mightier than the sword, why not have both?

This latest kit from Kallenshaanwoods.com (combined with the Knight’s Armor Pen Kit from Penn State Industries) is something a bit special!

Fire Rescue Pen

The latest pen from Kallenshaan Woods may be of interest, given the subject.  It is a fire and rescue logo, and although it is just one logo of the hundreds out there, the elements are quite typical.

The inlay kit has 19 pieces – red dyed basswood, natural basswood, silver metallic acrylic and curly maple.

Episode 85 Kallenshaan Laser Pen Turning

Kallenshaan Pen Kits

It was only the evening of the 20th that I ordered a couple of pen kits from the USA and they arrived 5 days later, from Kallenshaan Woods, who supply specialist laser cut pen kits (such as the Fire Pen kit I made about a year ago…

and the Betsy Ross I got as a bit of a memento from my trip to the US last year (sadly, I still have to actually make it!))

After seeing examples of Kallenshaan’s recent designs, I definitely wanted to get these:

And one for Wood Turners

It always surprises me how such fragile-looking components make it safely through the post, but they do.  Both kits will be interesting to make (and use), and I might finally get on with the Betsy Ross one as well. (I was waiting to source a supplier of Sierra Vista pen kits, but it is proving too hard to bother with, so I’ll stick to a normal Sierra kit)

Think I’m getting the pen-making bug back again!
