Two Editor pens from Exotic Blanks. I made these for two of the girls at work. One is antique brass, and the other is gunmetal. I love these little pens. The finish is Pens Plus.

I made them for a bunch of people at work last Christmas. Danika and Kayza are new. Didn't want them to feel left out.

They're looking good. The engraving goes well on that style pen. I bet it took a little experimenting on scraps to know how much power to use for different materials.
So, testing myself on the wood ID... Bubinga and Zebra? If not Zebra, maybe Marblewood or Goncalo Alves?

Very nice Jim. I especially like that the wood grain is slightly noticeable - I prefer to have wood feel like wood.

One is limba, and the other is marked as zebra, but I don't think it is.

I agree, I've always liked the grain to be exposed. That's why I've never bothered to learn the CA finish. Too smooth and "plasticky" for me. I want a wood pen to look and feel like wood.
