Default Buckeye Burl Triton Rollerball

I'm very happy with how this piece turned out. I know a lot of guys go for the double and triple dye, but I just love the natural colors of the buckeye.

I'm with you on the natural Buckeye; beautiful blank as well as the finished pen. Very nice.

Niiiiiiice! The pen is beautiful and I agree, there is no reason to dye such a gorgeous piece of wood.

Agree, no need for dye on a great blank like that. You have made a very nice pen with it.

Every day might not be a good day,
but there is something good in every day.

I also agree there is no need to alter the blank, an elegant pen
