NEWS – Holtz Leather Co. is a family-owned business that produces handcrafted wood and leather goods. The Tennessee Whiskey Barrel .30 Caliber Bolt Action Pen and Pen Sleeve is a perfect example of their products. They purchase complete whiskey barrels from Lynchburg, Tennessee hand-turn the wood into pens or other useful goods. These white oak barrels have housed distilled whiskey for 5-7 years, and the wood retains some of the fragrance of those spirits.
This pen has a “shotgun” for a pen clip. Instead of clicking on the top, you open the pen using a bolt-action mechanism similar to those found on some firearms. Finally, the top of the pen looks similar to the end of a shotgun shell. To finish the pen set, Holtz handcrafts a leather sleeve for the pen. You can add three initials to the sleeve for a perfect, personalized gift set. It’s not just for groomsmen, though.
The Tennessee Whiskey Barrel .30 Caliber Bolt Action Pen and Pen Sleeve is $59.00, direct from the Holtz Leather Co.
