Writing Pencils crafted from old M1 Stocks
 
Does anybody know if CMP still sell those pencils (advertised as "writing sticks") made with old and broken M1 Stocks? They came inside a beautiful walnut box. I believe a woodworker in New Mexico made them.

They are not currently listed on the estore.
I will see if I can find out if they plan to get any more...

Anyone have a picture of the pens?

Thank you for posting this. I had no idea these were made. A friend gave me a pocketknife a few years ago (maybe more) from the CMP with the body made from broken Garand stock. I like it.
