Default Musk Ox

My son got a Musk Ox a couple years ago and brought me back some horn! This is quite an experience to turn and finish- mistake on this one is I forgot to paint the blank- actually didnít think I would need to- 2nd one is getting painted!
Thoughts and constructive criticism!

Beautiful Blank and beautiful pen! I know it is not a wood blank but it looks like pearl-ized wood grain burl to me. Unique!

Looks great on my screen Keith. In person does the tube show through? I cannot see the tube, and if not, I like the color and striations just fine. Like Hank said, looks "pearlized".

Very nice.

Thanks Mark - yes there are a couple of angles where you can see the tube - some parts of the horn are very translucent!

Beautiful pen I love the look. From what I see there is no constructive criticism to give.

Very beautiful! Never would've guessed musk ox would turn out like that. Curious if you have a process for horn to prevent cracking? I turned a buffalo horn very early in my penturning and it developed a crack, I've been a little hesitant to try another until I feel more confident about the process...
