You get an A+ for both your pen and your perseverance !!!!!

But, seriously, how did you get the black color both in the wood of the pencils and in the matrix of glue around them ????

Great pen. Really like the black. But I had the same question. How did you get the black in the pencil and glue?

Best colored pencil I have seen. Have several teacher friends that would really like one.

Black pencils. They are made of some polymer shmoo (not wood, or may be some wood dust mixed in). When I saw them I was super happy - looks way more cool then regular colored pencils. And dark matrix of glue was epoxy with mixed in black dye. And gluing it was not fun:)

Main problem is epoxy is not holding pencils for some reason. May be it doesn't stick to paint, may be I've should wash them with acetone prior to gluing, and sandpaper would definitely help, so don't skip this step if you try it by yourself.

And yeah, leads also want to go away when they become exposed on a side. So really, it's almost unturnable with normal tools.

Actually, I've first seen idea of grinding pen away after reading post by George (robutacion) several years ago, where he shows how to "turn" a pen barrel from styrofoam. But I'm using small dremel with sanding barrel, much more controllable.

Here's that thread

I'll have to look for those black-wooded pencils ... never have I seen them ... gotta try this.

Can you tell us the brand name of the pencils, please, Yaroslav ?

I think it looks great. And if it was as hard as you say.......I would keep it for myself.

You did good. Going to keep that "grinding idea" in my head for a long time. Never know when I might try it out on something else.

It may have been a pain in the backside but it sure is a pretty pen!

Sorry for not very prompt response - had a show these days.

I can't help you on a brand name - first of, I live some 10000km and an ocean from you, that means almost no brand names are the same (we don't have even Loctite here!).

Second thing it was some chineseum brand that I don't really remember a name:( I just went to local Metro supermarket in school/kid's supply section and it was first I picked up on a shelf.

Sorry:(

I found these,and it seems they are not wood, which means it might be the same type of stuff that Yaroslaw uses since he refers to them as Polymer Shmoo!
