Default A few braided pens

Here are a few pens made using my own cast braided tinned copper wire and braided carbon fibre in clear polyester resin. There are a few on Sierra hardware and one on a long clicker.
Thanks for looking. C&Cs welcome.

Can't tell which type I like best. The tight braiding or the slightly open braid which allows colour through which of course can be varied, so quite useful. Either way both are nice.

Super cool! The black one kind of looks like carbon fiber.

Hi, the black one is carbon fibre. It is CF sleeve cast in clear polyester resin.
Thanks for the kind comments.

I am not a big Sierra fan, but it is the ideal kit for this application. Great looking pens.
