These are some El Grande kits I had lying around. The 1st 4 are Ti Gold with some nice natural Buckeye Burl. The next 3 are Ti Gold with green-dyed Boxelder Burl. The next 2 are an experiment with photography - I'm not a photographer. I have 3 different pens all in green-dyed Boxelder Burl: an American Double Twist, a Streamline American Screw Cap and the El Grande from the 3 previous pics. The last group of 4 is probably my most favorite kit in one of my most favorite woods: El Grande convertible pencil/ballpoint in Platinum; the wood is some very old (> 15 years old) figured African Rosewood. Please let me know what you think - bad and good.

Thanks Dehn0045, Mal, and Charlie! I love the El Grande, and when dressed nicely they can bring very good prices. I just gifted 6 of them to a friend of my wife's who is a fountain pen collector.

However, I have had more requests for the pencil than for the rollers or fp's.

Thanks Kenny. The slab I dug out of the trash in the back workshop at BHW. Larry had been cutting up a big Cambodian Burl, or maybe it was a Thuya Burl - can't remember and can't tell from looking at the slab - and he said take whatever you want; so I did. It usually just sits in my home office.
