This is a Slim Line Venetian Red acrylic pen from Woodcraft. I tried using carbide tools for turning acrylic, but I like using a sharp 1/2” spindle gouge turned on its side with either a push or pull cut. I wet sand from 220 grit to 1,500 grit then use Hut polish, that bottle of polish is probably a lifetime supply. Then I use a shop made pen press to put it together. I like making acrylic pens better than wood ones.
