Default A 60th Birthday Mistral for a friend

Made this pen today as a present for a friend's 60th birthday. Mistral fountain pen in rhodium with gold accent ring, rosewood, CA finish, brass powder inlay cap finial. As my friend has an interest in ancient Greece the laser engraved logo is ancient Greek for the number 60. Excuse the photos I didn't take too much care over them as it's not a pen I'm selling.

Thanks, yes that's exactly what I did. Three passes with 120 burn time using the Neje 1500mw DK-BL. Worked a treat.

That's a beautiful pen, I'm sure he'll be thrilled. While it's always nice to sell a pen, the ones I enjoy making the most are gifts.
