The pen that was truly mightier than the sword
An ink pen made from a spent shell casing and various crafty bits I had at the house. The shell was from a bag of assorted spent rounds a friend got for me from a shooting range, the rest are from my craft room, thus the cost being listed as so low. Check with local firing ranges or shooting enthusiasts for spent rounds. NEVER use one that hasn't been fired!

The twist pen mechanism was purchased for under a dollar at a place called the Unclaimed Baggage center though any pen's innards should work as well. The twist was really too difficult for a first time project of this nature but I'm more stubborn than it was difficult. The rest are decorative in nature and really should be altered to suit your preferences.

I hope to include a How-To later as I took no pictures nor did I really follow any set plan while making this one.
