Default Cleaning out the bins

My pen turning has really tapered off this year, until a couple weeks ago the only pens I had turned were a custom order of 5 bolt action pens for a fellow that I graduated with from high school.

I have a number of kits and blanks in stock, so I decided to go through and make as many of those as I can - at the rate they have been selling for me, that should keep me in stock for a number of years.

So here they are...

Black Ti Junior Gent with Leopardskin Trustone barrels


Gold Junior Gent with Turquoise Trustone barrels


Chrome Baron Fountain pen in Bloody Basin Jasper Trustone barrels


Celtic Pen with PSI blank


This pen has been laying in the bin short only a transmission for years - now completed. It was once called a Patriot, now I believe is called a Carbara. Blue acrylic barrel with a pearl stripe.


Another Patriot pen, this one with black glitter blank from Woodturningz.


And last and least, a 10K gold comfort pen from CSUSA in Tulipwood - CA finish:

Nice looking pens.

Just curious, has your decline in pen sales been because a decline in promotion. Have you been trying and it just has not continued to work? Or are you just moving on?

They all look great, but you probably have a few more hidden someplace. Carl

Mostly, just moving on to other wood turned items. Although, it seems to me that sales the last couple years have not been what they were previously.

Yes, I do - including a couple styles that I never have turned.

I love acrylic and cast blanks more than most but that comfort pen in tulip is clean and simple. Stunning!
