Working on improving my pen design skills. Included are a segmented pen and one with an aluminum Celtic knot, and a hybrid pen engraved with my sister-in laws name. She is Indian so I put her name in English on one side and in Hindi (thanks to Google translate) on the other. Also an ebony pen with a maple veneer knot and a pine cone from the back yard cast in alumilite resin..

Nice pens A’bb...

It is also a pleasure to see divergence from those over bulbous slimlines that people tend to produce.

Just don’t try to sell them… guaranteed you’d find some jerk that would generously offer you $5 for that celtic knot work and not even acknowledge that the kit would cost twice that amount..

They look very nice. I have to try one of those pine cone blanks. There are some trees around here that produce a cone shape “cone” that are very interesting looking. I think they come from a magnolia tree.
