Smile A comeback! BOW Sierra with abalone inlay

Hi!

It's been a while (1.5 year?) when I last visited IAP. And I missed it!
So after two days working on photos of my recent pens, I've decided to post some of my "special" pens here. The one's that I'm proud of, first:)

When me and my better half were preparing for a wedding a year ago with local pastor, I've noticed him having few pens at hand, and they were not the cheapest Bic's (and not something expensive either:).

And I was working on a inlay process for a special order, so I decided to make a pen for Father Michal (reads <mee-khal>) as a present for spending quite some time with us (something like 10-15 hrs in total) and beeing just an amazing guy :)

So here it comes - "Bethleem" Olive Wood with Abalone inlay. And, laser engraving on a plastic ring (kit is Zodiac from ExoticBlanks.com, I removed zodiac ring and turned black acrylics and engraved it with pastors name).

Welcome back stranger!

What a mighty awesome pen to re-introduce yourself.

I have been showing off the IAP Collection this past month, and each time when I chat about your two pens I say: "Hope this guy is OK! Haven't heard from him lately."

Superb inlay.

Thanks Mark!
I'm doing good. Kickstarter thing last year kicked me in the back, so I had to work 12x7x3month for free (em, total net is -$1500 not counting work time). After that it was a recovery:) Now doing some small custom orders for some big companies. Will share them later:)
