    I was selling my crap at a music festival (my friend runs it and there's a craft show type deal that goes along with it) last weekend and I had a civil war set of pens on display. I had at LEAST twenty people thank me for displaying it. :dontknow:

    I felt zero need to hide it. It's a set of pens that recreate the period bullets and rifle on the clip.

    There were a few people that seemed WAAAY too happy to see it tho. :weird: Those wackos gave me knuckle bumps and I felt odd afterward. :jj:

    Elias, I think the important question here is:

    How much for the pen???

    No. The pens were made awhile ago. I probably would have made them specifically because of the crap going on now anyway.

    I actually had a woman give me grief over a fossil pen i made. :funny: It's made out of woolly mammoth tusk pieces in black acrylic.

    She got all sad and mumbled, "Oh. I don't know if that's right to do that..."

    I told here not to worry because I only work with mammoths killed in combat.

    I sell the set for $250. They're all individually inlaid. The friggin stars take FOREVER. That's with the case and I include an actual civil war bullet from a battlefield in Kentucky. Ii bought them awhile ago and forgot the specific battlefield. :doh:

    Another guy asked me if all the pens were a dollar. ?

    I said "Sure, some are 2 dollars tho."

    He asked "What costs 2 dollars then?"

    I told him "Two $1 pens."

    He walked away. :jj:


    I'm not too fond of annoying people.
