Default Hex-barrel vertex

Had to make another. Difficult to show the flats..at least for me. Enjoy. Comments welcome: good, bad or indifferent.

Beautiful Pen Don,
Love the Hexagonal Blank, Perfectly Shaped.
Sits well with the Vertex Hardware.
Excellent Finish.
Congratulations,
Brian.

Excellent Don! Excellent! With pens, I think it is harder to create a great finish on flats than on curves. The picture shows that you nailed it!

Did you "dip" it?

Work in progress with me also Don when that kit came out it gave me extreme pleasure to nail it. Thanks for sharing mate. I find it hard to get detail in dark pens also.

Regards Peter.

Thanks Hank. I tried CA this time. I have started using Mercury Flex and really like it. I put on 3 coats each of thin and medium them buffed.
