This pen is the one I use for all my most important and meaningful writing. It has a pleasant weight in the hand, the bolt-action is smooth and the quality is top notch. I love the connection to US military history and would recommend this pen to anyone with a love of unique writing instruments.
This was my second pen purchased from allegory. I intended to purchase this as a gift for my father and decided to grab myself one as well. The pen itself is amazing quality and the bolt action is just an added element of cool.
I bought this for my father-in-law for his birthday, a history buff and businessman. I don't think I could have found a better present if I looked for another year. Incredible quality, beautiful pen, amazing piece of history which he keeps on his desk. The action is smooth, the wood as gorgeous as all of allegory's pieces. I never have a single doubt about buying from Allegory ever since I first discovered them on kickstarter.
I own a number of Allegory pens and the 1941 was no disappointment. It is absolutely beautiful and the action is unique and fun. Also, a great use for a piece of American history!
As a North Carolinian this pen spoke to me. My parents took my brother and I on a tour the USS North Carolina as children. I have since taken my children and grandchildren to tour this great ship. Now we all have some of her decking in our 1941 series pens. These pens are great writing instruments on top of the historical value. I love the bolt action activation!
