These are the 2nd & 3rd fountain pens that I have turned. The first was a trial and was exactly like these. They were all made out of Ebony and there is a small story behind them. I taught Ind. Arts for 32 years and was retired when I got word that my school was going to close down the shop program due to not being able to find an instructor, so after 6 years of retirement I told them I would fill in for a year. One of the jr. high students I had that year got involved in archery. Turns out, he got pretty good at it and won the Silver medal in the 2016 Olympics. Originally, he wanted a c;ustom bow grip made out of Ebony and that he had the wood. So I told him I would give it a try (first time working with Ebony), anyway I got it done and he loved it and then he turned around and wanted to know if I could make a couple of fountain pens for him and his girlfriend. You will have to forgive me on the pictures, photography is not my skill.

Impressive in all aspects. The Ebony pieces are beautiful and knowing that a former student would return asking for your help is a honor all by itself. You made a lasting impression on this young man. Good on you!

Great story, the best projects are the ones that have a story behind it. Everybody wins
