The casting & finish on this pen is truly amazing. There's no doubt that I got the better of this swap!

Thanks, Seth - you are a true craftsman!
Edgar
Thank you for the kind words Edgar!

I'm very glad to hear that you are happy with it. I had fun making it. Oh, and I forgot to mention that the leather sleeve was made by my brother Nate.

I'm looking forward to seeing what comes in the mail from you!

That is really cool! Please thank Nate for me - he does some mighty fine work!

Sorry for the late post, had to take a break from the workshop. My PITH partner was BrotherDale, which is funny since my real brother's name is Dale. Anyway BrotherDale sent me this beautiful blue spalted maple GT Knurl. Blue is my favorite color and the GT Knurl is one of my favorite pen designs. In the photo are the blanks he sent with the pen blue and green maple, curly maple, clear maple burl and lignum vitae. Thanks

Got my pen from Edgar! It came in yesterday's mail in a big box FULL of LOTS of wood, burl, and casting material.

Here are some pics (I could hardly fit all the loot in my photo box!)

Lots of great materials here and some stuff he brought back from his recent trip to Hawaii. There's koa, mango, some beautiful burl, spalted blanks, etc, etc, etc, and a Lou Metcalf pen blank!

This beauty from Edgar was made from one of George's (robutacion) blanks. It's called Platypus Gum and the components are a Black Ti/Platinum Manhattan kit. It came beautifully displayed in this nice pen box. I really like the blank, kit and plating and the craftsmanship is excellent!

Thanks, Seth. I'm really happy to hear that you like the pen & goodies. I thought that Platypus Gum blank had some very nice character to it, but I was a little disappointed that there wasn't a lot of contrast to it in the final turned blank, so I tried to select a kit with a finish that would let blend well with the blank.

I probably have enough wood in my shop & tractor shed to last a few lifetimes, but I can't seem to stop collecting more. I'm happy to share some if it from time to time, especially when I manage to pick up some interesting things from one of my trips.

I hope you'll enjoy casting some of the stuff I sent you. Please post a photo when you do.

This was a fun PITH - thanks again for your awesome pen & blanks. I hope we get paired up again someday.

Edgar

I was thrilled to receive these wonderful works from Darley! His own casts for the pine cones, feathers, and watch parts. Serge has a very nice style for the feathers combined with other imbedded objects.

Thank you, Mate!
