Product Description

American Heritage Battle of Gettysburg Fountain Pen
On that memorable day in November of 1863 when President Abraham Lincoln delivered his Gettysburg Address at the dedication of the Soldiers National Cemetery (now Gettysburg National Cemetery), a young Honey Locust tree stood about 150 feet from the speaker's platform. Being rooted on Cemetery Hill on the right side of the Union line, this tree was a silent witness to the Battle of Gettysburg that had raged there for three momentous days in July. Now, 150 years after the battle, only the Honey Locust and a few other witness trees remain at Gettysburg National Military Park. The Battle of Gettysburg pen is handcrafted from a portion of that Honey Locust, salvaged after a severe storm damaged part of the tree in 2008. Carefully crafted in the USA, the one-of-a-kind wood barrels and caps are turned and polished by hand, then equipped with black resin and polished chrome fittings. The fountain pen with steel nib and twist ball pen are engraved with 'Battle of Gettysburg'. Pay tribute to the 150-year history of the Civil War when you write with the Witness Tree pens. Cartridge/converter fill.

Disappointing
Overall

Not very good

Very ordinary

The cap does not post on the barrel when you are writing. This is a fundamental defect. I have over 200 pens in my collection, and all of their caps either screw on to the barrel when I'm writing or attach firmly. I can't properly use a pen where the cap doesn't attach firmly during writing because of my large hands.

No

Certainly worth the money

The pen is a piece of history, vicariously obtained. It seems well made. The nib is nice, more Fine than Medium, and I like that.

It is fine, as is, but I used a brown liquid shoe polish to even out the appearance and then polished it. The cap wood was distinctly darker that the barrel wood and by darkening it and evening out the color it looks a lot nicer now.

A little hard to get the ink flowing the first use, but now it is fine.

I believe so.

What is your opinion of the quality of this item?

I'm very happy to have it.
