Default Pen 5

This pen is the 6th I have turned and probably the first that I am truly satisfied with. It is a chrome "Segmented" from PSI and the wood is Bethlehem Olive or at least it's supposed to be. (I read the very interesting thread about the Israeli Olivewood with regard to authenticity) The finish is basic Ultra-Shine followed by Shellawax and turned out great. Thank you and good luck to everyone!
