Very Nice Pen, Jim.
Glorious Snake Skin Blank, well Fitted and Finished,
The Hardware is Extremely Ornate, and I wonder if it is a little too busy?
I pose this as a Question, and Not a Statement, as I can't decide, if it is or isn't.
I would appreciate comments from other reviewers, as I am sure you would.
Regards,
Brian.

Brian, I understand your concern but I think the blank is a good compliment to the design. When I looked at the pen again I tried to decide what blank would look best and frankly nothing came to mind - so I think the snakeskin works. IMHO.

I'm not a fan of those novelty kits, but even I must admit this pen looks sweet! You could sell that for big bucks to some Game of Thrones fans.

Probably going to make one for my son's College graduation.

This or skulls but that may have bee a faze a few years ago. :)

But sometimes you just need to make a novelty pen thats not going to be used. Better than some of the waspy slimelines I have seen. Just not a fan. :)

Jim, fabulous choices from the project's start. Well executed. That is the kind of pen that many of us aspire to. The kind of piece that many folks will see and just HAVE to own themselves. Very impressive "one of a kind". In a word....WOW.
