Default Chevron

I have been searching for a chevron method, since I had never attempted it. Didn’t really find much, so I devised my own method. Here’s the result. By the way, I had some left over “ribbon” material, from the ribbon box, already laminated so I used that. The end caps are Purple Heart. img_1049.jpgimg_1050.jpg

Well done Ken. Your precision for the ends of the points is great. I also love the box - wish my skills extended to that.

There are many ways to do chevrons. This is just one: http://content.penturners.org/librar...vron_blank.pdf

This is not a full blank style (eg, Gisi ), but a thinner inlay; but may give you some thoughts for the future.

Very nice pen.
