History Salvaged and HistoryPens.com, LLC (HS) began with a simple goal: the reclamation, salvaging, and repurposing of wood and other natural materials from historic sites throughout the United States that would otherwise be discarded and lost to history.
HS works primarily with wood and timbers removed from historical buildings and sites during the renovation of existing structures as well as with trees and branches that have fallen in storms or are removed for safety reasons or expanded construction.
The value that History Salvaged sees in these unique resources has inspired us to create our handcrafted heirlooms! If these resources could only speak, they would provide first-hand accounts to some of the seminal events in American and World History. By salvaging and utilizing Witness Wood® and other materials, our passion and commitment is to build heirlooms that last for generations! Our hope not only is that our creations will inspire, generate conversation and enjoyment for their original owners, but that they will be passed down to future generations and inspire that generation with the story each contains!
Each of the pens, cufflinks or other heirlooms we create are crafted to stand the test of time. The materials that we use to accent and complement our Witness Wood® is of the finest quality and when in the hands of our Master Craftsmen the finished product will look as good 25 years from now as the day it was purchased.
History Salvaged is always striving to new heights. We continually seek new, unique and rare Witness Woods® and are proud to have many exclusive relationships with historic sites. Combined with our classic and innovative designs we are proud to be the industry leaders in the creation of handcrafted historic Witness Wood® fine writing instruments.
Leading the industry and creating our historic Witness Wood® pens is not an easy task, but a welcome one. A single pen can take up to 80 hours to complete and that does not take into account the process of locating and acquiring salvageable artifacts, choosing a pen design or developing and creating a new custom pen design and all the non pen components like packaging, Certificates of Authenticity and more.
As the leading manufacturer in the historic Witness Wood® pen market, we take pride in our Made in America craftsmanship, a tradition that we will never waver from.
History Salvaged takes the same pride in the creation of a historic Witness Wood® pen whether made for Captains of Industry, Pope Francis, the British Royal Family, Governors, the President of the United States or YOU, our valued customer.
