Cartridge Pen Kits w/Gettysburg Pen Blank
Designed by Jason Rose, the upper pen blank features images and wood commemorating where President Lincoln prepared the Gettysburg Address:
"Fourscore and seven years ago our fathers brought forth, on this continent, a new nation, conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal. Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived, and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting-place for those who here gave their lives, that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this. But, in a larger sense, we cannot dedicate, we cannot consecrate—we cannot hallow—this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us—that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they here gave the last full measure of devotion—that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain—that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom, and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth."

Congratulations you are now the proud owner of a Gettysburg pen (blank). Wood in the blank was taken from the Wills House where President Lincoln stayed while putting the finishing touches on the Gettysburg Address.
UPPER PEN BLANK INSTRUCTIONS:
The lower interface of the upper blank uses a 30 CAL Bolt Action Bushing. The upper finial uses the Euro or Designer finial bushing. The blank is turned to size and polished like a normal resin blank. Sand through the 12,000 grit Micro Mesh pads. You can use a plastic polish after if desired, but it is not required.
LOWER HALF ASSEMBLY INSTRUCTIONS:
For the brass cartridge itself, you may want to polish with Renaissance Wax to prevent tarnish, or expect to polish often as untreated brass.
