Default Hello from Phoenix, Arizona

I've been turning pens for the last 6 months now, learning a lot of new stuff really fast. I've been selling them also, shipping them all over the US. With some sent to Canada, Qatar, and Germany now. I've attached some examples of what I've done. Let me know what you think.

From left to right:
1. Magnetic Cap Vertex in Gunmetal with Wenge Wood and aluminum chevron cut inserts.
2. Slimline Pro with Miami Dolphins
3. Titanium/Black Cuban with TruStone Malachite (made this one for myslef)
4. Magnetic Cap Vertex in Gunmetal with Stabilized Buckeye Burl and aluminum chevron cut inserts.

Thanks for reading!

Welcome Kyle, from Sydney Australia.
Your Pens look Very Good.

FYI the Forum "Show Off Your Pen" is where Members Post their Pens, so that others will look to Provide Comments, a Critique, to Praise what you are doing well, and give you some insight on what you might like to improve. Many times provide you with the "How" you might be able to do it.

As you are already in the Global Market Place, I feel that I should draw your attention to the Transition from the Blank to the Nib Section of the Dolphins' Slimline.
It appears from the Photograph, that the Diameter of the Blank is a little undercut to the Nib End.
This is of course where your finger goes, and your finger and that of your Customer, will register the most minute differential in Diameters.

Apart from this, your Pens are Excellent.
I look forward to seeing more of your work in the near future.
Congratulations,
Brian.
