Beautiful pen Danny and well done. I have made and sold a few of those. They hold up well.

Great looking writing instrument Danny! You did a Great job turning too!
I've created 4 from the 6 blanks of Ancient Kauri from New Zealand that are in the 30,000 to 50,000 years old but the wood is a lot lighter in color. They make a very good looking Pen

Great job. A carry pen like that should get you more to make.
