I was thinking of using some to make pen cases with. Never occured to make the pen out of it.

I like the matte finish

Very Nice. I have rebuilt several old fly rods and have been thinking about trying this for a while. Guess I will have to get serious now.

Thanks, Phil.

Bamboo has a beautiful look to it. Bamboo pen cases are awesome.

Cool! I love rebuilding the old cane rods - was initially hoping to find a nice beat up old rod I could make a pen out of, but can't seem to find one with a big enough diameter. So now I have been trying to figure out a good way to plane a bamboo blank to hexagonal to look more like those beautiful classic rods...

Cheers,

Ken

Love the concept and your work. Great Pen and technique.
Have you thought of making one in the Japanese style of a Brush Pen? .... Even if not for use or sale, it would make a great display piece.
