The warm hues of the Norfolk Pine are beautiful! I vaguely remembered turning a NFP pen when I first started turning, so I looked back in the archives and came up with a photo. Its colors look like most of the NFP blanks I've come across and I'm wondering why yours is so much richer in color? I'd love to get my hands on a similar blank!

I don't recall seeing a Shakespeare rollerball before and I like its clean lines and finish. I went looking to buy one online and couldn't find any in stock. Apparently it's not sold in the US.

Nice job on that pen! It may be more unique than you think!

Glorious Pen Stephen.
Beautiful Norfolk Island Pine Blank, I Love the Metal Inlay to secure the Knot Kernel, Many a Dentist would be Proud of that.
Spectacular Combination of the Shakespeare Hardware, and the Superbly Fitted and Finished Blank,
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?
