I am attending a conference in Louisville, KY. I made these pens as gifts for some people here at the conference. The wood is Kentucky Coffee Tree, which seems appropriate. Besides these pens, I have used the same wood to turn a couple of other things that I am still working on finishing. I like these pens, and the other things are looking pretty good so far.

Fantastic art turning. What pen inserts did you select? Doesn’t look like Cross, Shaefer, or Parker. But I like the looks and certainly the slim shape you’ve chosen.. Thanks for sharing/

These are PSI Slimline Pro kits. They have a Parker style gel ink refill.

Never seen coffee tree wood before. Nice pens though and nice grain flow on them too.
