Antler pens and pencils are made from antlers shed by male members of the deer family like native white-tailed deer, mule deer, and elk or exotic species like fallow deer and axis deer. Antler is bone making it more challenging to turn on a lathe. Fine writing antler pens are crafted as ballpoint click pens, ballpoint twist pens, fountain pens, mechanical pencils, and rollerball pens. Since each pen is handmade by the craftsman owner, no two will be exactly alike. The hand turned pen in the photograph is the pen you will receive.
