IMO, natural buckeye is so neutral that it looks good on anything. My office pen is black line spalted natural buckeye on a platinum cigar, and it looks fantastic. Well, except it was one of my first turnings and I did a crappy job, but you get my point

It would also look great on gold, black titanium, whatever. Pick your favorite pen style and color and go for it.

My choice given what you want out of it would probably be a full sized gent of whatever plating, or a black ti statesman. Gold statesman would look good, but a bit much bling for me

Thanks everyone for the answers! I decided to go with Pennstates gold Tycoon which is a version of the Jr. Gent.

I love the statesman and the triton and the cigars. I'll be getting those kits eventually too. Thanks!

Hi.
I just turned some buckeye last night. I put it on a black chrome slimline. Looks great and probably the first slimline I've done in months.

Any quality kit as long as it is either shiny chrome or black titanium, my opinion. Ask for opinions then do exactly as you decided before asking the question that way you will have no one to credit or blame but yourself. Welcome!!
