In August of 2012 I received a call from a man in California. He asked, “Can you make me a pen from a Warthog tusk?” I told him I had never made one but I was willing to try. He explained that he had been on an African Safari in 2011 and had harvested a Warthog. He was reading Joe Chambers, of Chambers Custom Pistols, news letter and saw a reference to my antler pens.
The pen turned out pretty cool. It is a Majesty style twist pen with Titanium Nitride gold and gun metal finishes. The customer wanted a turquoise insert (in the middle of the pen). I was also able to add a turquoise inlay toward the top of the pen. Now he enjoys remembering his trip every day as he uses his Warthog Tusk Pen!
