Have been seeing a lot of bullet pens on this forum so I figured I’d join in the fun. This is a chrome bullet pen matched with gaboon ebony. Since ebony (at least this piece) doesn’t have a lot of figure, you have to be really diligent with the sanding because any sanding marks show through.

Nice piece. How did you finish it? I’ve had a good deal of success with a CA glue finish.

This one has about 24 coats of CA. After the first dozen, it was sanded down to remove any surface imperfections then after the second dozen coats it was polished with micro mesh. Using glue as a finish took a while to get my mind around, but to me, its now my go-to finish for pens.
