I wish I would find that in my shop if I cleaned it.

A stunning pen, blank, clip, finish and profile. Simply beautiful.

Thank you for sharing.

Thomas, I love the kit, and that blank is truly amazing. But personally, I do have an issue with the final shape of the pen. I don't care for a pen that is larger round on the bottom portion, then the cap. I don't know what it is about this style of pen, but I've just never cared for them myself. You did an amazing job of turning it and all, and there's not a thing wrong with it. But unfortunately, we all have our likes and dislikes.

Excellent Pen Thomas,
Glorious Blank, and Pen Case/Stand.
Pen is Beautifully Turned, Fitted and Finished,
Love your Rampant Lion Clip.
The Box/Pen Stand is Magnificent, Fantastic Thuya Burl, Brilliantly Shaped, and Finished.
Fantastic Craftsmanship,
Turn that special piece of Timber you have been keeping.
Enjoy it for its true beauty.
Why leave it for others to enjoy without you?
