Made this as an experiment to see how it comes out. I had to be really mindful of the curve of the blank as well as it easily rotating while digging the grooves to avoid slipping and cutting myself.

Thank you gentlemen; as always appreciate the feedback. Larry, I feel proud to have inspired you to get back into pen making. When I first started, I was thinking who uses pen anymore? Two of my daughters are RN’s and the third one a teacher. They informed me that both professions are very particular about their pens and avid pen lovers. So, that got me inspired to make a few pens for them. Then my nephew got his master’s degree in statistics so, I had to make him one. There is a demand out there although most folks are reluctant to pay $30-$40 for a pen.
