This “Pioneer” model, which is just a Slimline with a fatter waist and ever so fatter top end, is made of an unknown wood. The kit finish is “Black Titanium.” I have no more words.

Thank you. And I apologize.

Thanks.

Lew: This one, I hit with YG before going to the CA. I wanted to bring out the figure. I think it may have caused some problem with the shine. If it comes up again (and it will), I think I’ll use BLO instead of YG. There might be some reactive peculiarity between the YG and CA.

Great looking pen Mark and displayed nicely!

I hope anyone that pics one up to use it don’t end up walking away with it.
Maybe you should make a box with a secret compartment to hide all your pens in. :)

Good to idea putting them in a case! I’ve never made a pen before (no lathe here) and I’ve always admired the look of the ones you and other have made.

Question… I have often wondered about how they feel when you are using them. Some pens are nice and smooth and some are just awful as they skate over the pulp!
