I received mine from Mark (markjames) earlier this week. It's amazing! Thank you, Mark.

I also got two segmented blanks, and some royal poinciana and coconut palm, which are what the pen is made from (including coconut palm end grain for the finial cap). Mark and his family consider the Grand Cayman as a home to them, and that is where the woods are from.

Thanks!
Eric

P. S. Mark, yours is ready to be shipped as soon as the post office opens. I didn't intend on going up to the last minute, but that's how it goes sometimes...

Jason (Aces-High) and I swapped.

Both pens arrived same day, and we had no communication prior. We are both from the same general area in Colorado, so maybe there's something in the air?

Hard to believe, huh?

Thanks to Jason for a beautiful pen.

Top pen:

Local aspen wood, recycled beer can, black paperboard

Bottom pen:

Local cotton wood, local willow, local walnut, copper shingle

The Royal Poinciana came from Wood128 in Florida (difficult to import wood from the caribbean), and I had the Coconut Palm in my stash. Both timbers are vibrantly seen in the Cayman Islands. Someday my signature will list this as my home...

Here's what I got from Cody (Cwalker935)... he said it was local to the Richmond area and some from his property. Some nice walnut blanks, which is one of my favorite wood, some maple, a couple of ?? blanks, and two very nice pens.

The pen is beautiful and I hope Mr Vic can let us know what technique he used. It looks to be a very nicely done inlay.

We just shipped his pen and goodies this morning and hope he enjoys them as much as Rebecca likes hers!

Thanks!

The package arrived today and I didn't get to open until 9:30 tonight as I had to attend a Water Association Board meeting.

The pen is modified European made from Aspen and feather Inlaid with Cedar/Juniper, The goodies are Tagu Nuts, African Blackwood, Philippine Acacia, Australian Koa, Spalted Pecan and Spectra Ply. All but the Blackwood were from my previous swap stash. Can you guess who the Pecan was from?

Rebecca sent me a beautiful Triton Convertible made from Sinker Cypress and an Ornament from Texas Ebony along with some other goodies to include a fridge magnet with a Texas Longhorn cow on it. Kinda late so pictures tomorrow.

Thanks Rebecca the pen is awesome and writes smooth.

Okay, Here are some terrible pics of my PITH Exchange with Rebecca.

The pen is a Chrome Convertible Triton dressed in Sinker Cypress. My pictures don't do the pen justice. If you're like me you'll have to Google the wood but I'll save you the hassle. Sinker Cypress « Bruner Lumber It's Cypress that was floated down the river to the mill but sank before it got there. When recovered, what's left is the very dense heartwood.



Usually when I get or make a new fountain pen I'll remove the nib and feed to flush/clean of any manufacturing oils. I was surprised to find the cartridge installed so I just put pen to paper ->



I was pleasantly surprised as the flow was good and smooth in all directions. This is the stock kit nib and writes great.

In addition to the Beautiful Pen she sent along some Texas woods... Can wait to figure out what to make with them.



And take a look at the cool Texas Ebony Ornament...

You all better watch out come BASH time! This little lady will give us all a run for our money.

I am glad it wrote so smoothly when you received it. We did not plan to ship it with the ink installed but this was the first fountain pen Rebecca has made and she had it all assembled with the fountain tip and cartridge before we had a chance to tell her to wait. We talked about removing the cartridge before shipping it but thought it would be ok. The triton kits had been ordered before the PITH and were waiting on the right wood and then I read somewhere they were one of your favorites. The sinker cypress was a new wood for her so it took a couple of attempts for her to get everything just right.

Thanks again for the exchange! She is continuing to learn and grow her skills. She has a few orders to fill and then hopes to have time to try bowl turning before the FIRST robotics season starts! Just maybe she will get to use the metal lathe or CNC machine.

We've had some absolutely beautiful pens shown so far in this PITH, but I have to say, not only was the pen that was made by Rebecca awesome , but the way that Vic portrayed it, just knocked it out of the park. I think that's made it my personal favorite anyway.

I came home from a Thanksgiving trip to find Jeff’s (Skeleton2014) package on my front steps. Jeff put the hat back into PITH by sending me a Seahawks hat two beautiful pens and a hidden knife key ring. One of the pens used a blank featuring Seahawk colors. To top it all off, Jeff sent me a ton of fantastic blanks.

I will wear the Seahawks hat proudly since Russell Wilson is from Richmond and Kam Chancellor and Duane Brown both starred for my Virginia Tech Hokies.

Thank You Jeff!
