Those are some fine looking pens. Kenny sent me a pencil he made. It’s become my favorite writing utensil. I think it’s a combination of the weight, size, and of course appearance that makes it so usable.

I think the redheart pen looks the best. Have you tried bloodwood, chechen, sedua or african blackwood? You could also make a corn version using yellowheart. Just a suggestion ;+)
