Default Kirinite Gt Knurl

It's way to cold to turn today, but I needed to get this one done. It's Kirinite from Exotic Blanks. It takes a long time to turn as you can barely take any material off while turning.

Now to warm up and watch some college football!!

Beautiful looking blank. Love the colors I see in it.
This pen looks great. Good enough for the 'front page' (in my opinion)

Well done Ernie.

Interesting shadings for the colors. I don't believe I have turned Kirinite.

LOve the final pen. Well done.

Iíve worked with Kirinite several times mostly for knife grips. It polished nicely while retaining a good grip, original designed for gun grips. You MUST keep it cool and it can be grabby to turn, hence shallow cuts. You did an amazing job turning and finishing. Did you back paint the hole, what color if you did?

Excellent! I hate working with Kirinite, but at the same time I love working with Kirinite for the results.

Beautiful blank there turned and finished wonderfully, inspires me to maybe add a Kirinite or two to my next order from EB.
