Default Pens for the knights of Columbus

Made some pens for my brother knights for helping me and my family. Here they are all euro pens. This is my last acrylic acetate pen blank and I hope the last of these I have to turn what a pain in the ass. The darn thing stunk when I was turning busted out the bottom of 3 blanks two made it. This is one of them my friend that moved to GA 15 years ago came to see me yesterday knew he would show so I made sure I'd make an extra special sketch pencil for him he loved it.

Slow down my friend, at the rate you're going, you're in danger of wearing your self out. Never the less it's great to see you back doing what you love to do and talking to you daily I haven't ever heard you sound so bright and alive. Keep it up Glenmore but at a steady pace.

Say pal, I really like the looks of the box wood ero pen. Also, it must be nice to have friends?

Excellant work again my friend, you have not lost the touch, maybe got even better.

Well Glenmore all I can say is you haven't lost your touch. Those are some good looking pens. Of the 20 pen order I have when I get home 10 are acrylic. I don't mind turning acrylic especially with a skew.

Bernie do you use the acetate acrylics or another? I can't stand these the smell is like taking you bottle of ca glue and snorting it. No I don't go around sniffing glue.
