Default A Pair of Gatsby Grande Pens

These are Gatsby Grande pens, one in gold and one in chrome. I was able to get both out of one Kirinite Patriot blank. I made these for my step-mother and her sister. I really like the Kirinite blanks.

Hey Jim, is that a copper kit on the pen on the right? They both look good to me.

Yes, the third pen is an antique copper Federal, from PSI. The blank is a Kirinite Copper Pearl.
