Default 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...

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.
