Beautiful pen and kit/blank combinations.

The coconut husk material is quite a pretty material when chopped up and compressed like this, I still believe this will be the closest material I will ever have to the old Palm root stuff that so many people loved, I still have a few of those Palm root blanks left, after that, I may never get any more of it.

As for the coconut husk pen blanks, I really would like to go through the E-cig blanks I have and either sell them as is (block) or cut them into shorter pen blanks such as the ones used in this offer, their length is the length that at the time the E-cig blanks were requested to be made at, longer ones were ordered sometime later but never many and I don't think that I had made any of the longer ones with the coconut husk.

There are still a bunch of the shorter blanks left on my web-store, I will only consider making full-size pen blanks after these (blocks and shorts) are all gone.

So far, and with only 2 members still not accounted for out of the initial 10 , the consensus has been that the blank made this way, is fairly easy to handle and finish, this was indeed what I noticed when I first made them and turned a sample that I will try to find and post a pic or two.

Thank you for completing your pen.

Cheers
George

I like the shorter blanks as they are good for a Zen or Vertex pen.
