Default Monarch Master, aka Hawaii Love

My niece's husband is in the US Army, stationed in Hawaii (yeah, it's a dirty job, but somebody's gotta do it - ). For some reason, I thought they might want a set of Hawaii-themed pens. I ordered both the kits and the blanks from a vendor in Hawaii so I could turn them and ship them BACK to Hawaii...

The kits are Monarch Masters (aka "Hawaii Love"), and the blanks are Koa. They were finished with 8 coats of WTF. For some reason they shipped me one heartwood blank and one sapwood so I had to adapt and overcome - I hope I did them justice.
