Default New Personal Pen

I decided to make myself a new pen for everyday carrying. It is a Rollester in Honduran Rosewood Burl. I had trouble with hairline cracks appearing at the tip after assembling. I tried disassembling, refinishing and then reassembling. The second time I was extremely careful to clean any excess glue and went really slow. The cracks came back in the same locations. I guess I will wait until I drop it someday and then try again...

Beautiful Pen Sam,
Outstanding Honduran Rosewood Burl Blank, Expertly Turned, Fitted and Finished.
The Photographs would be better if the Glare from the Background was eliminated.
Turn that special piece of Timber you have been keeping.
Enjoy it for its true beauty.
Why leave it for others to enjoy without you?

Thanks Brian! I agree, still need to work on my photography skills. Sadly, I think these are some of the best pen photos I have taken to date. I was using sunlight from behind the camera, but I think most of the glare is from lights that were on in the kitchen. Your critique is well received, thanks!
