Default Monarch Master, aka Hawaii Love

My niece's husband is in the US Army, stationed in Hawaii (yeah, it's a dirty job, but somebody's gotta do it - ). For some reason, I thought they might want a set of Hawaii-themed pens. I ordered both the kits and the blanks from a vendor in Hawaii so I could turn them and ship them BACK to Hawaii...

The kits are Monarch Masters (aka "Hawaii Love"), and the blanks are Koa. They were finished with 8 coats of WTF. For some reason they shipped me one heartwood blank and one sapwood so I had to adapt and overcome - I hope I did them justice.

Great pen set--wonderful use of the material. Don't think i'd ever seen Koa sapwood before, kind of makes me itch for some transitional (two-tone) pieces. That sapwood has an interesting look in its own right.

Beautiful pens. Excellent work. Where did the box come from?

Thanks for the compliments everybody, they're appreciated.

Frank, the box is the Maple Gift Box (PKBOXMPM - $8.95) from PSI. They come with a single and double insert, and a Majestic insert is available as an accessory (PKBOXMPC - $2.50). I use them quite a bit for my larger pens.

BTW, Mountain Home is beautiful country. My wife has a lot of relatives around Springfield MO, so sometimes when we visit out there we make it a point to drive the "southern route" and take 412 over to Pocahontas on the way home.

Great looking pens they will enjoy them. After all being stationed in Hawaii is such a hardship they will need something to lift their spriits.
