Do you have 6" blanks available, by chance? Also, is the shipping a flat $5.50 for every five blanks or does it change as the number purchased increases?
Thanks!

I bought some and it made a great looking kit pen, the pen body looks amazing.

Just curious, do you know if anyone has used these to make a bespoke pen?

I received mine the other day. I have used a ton of this and all sold well. I always leave the wood natural so they can actually feel it. No sense having something that old if you can't touch it.

He ships fast too! A++++++

Natural sounds like a great way to call a pen "complete". When leaving it without a finish, what level of sanding/MM do you use? Anything special done after sanding, i.e. wax, etc? Thanks.

I sanded with the grain 320, 400 and then 600. Denatured alcohol to remove the dust and that is it for me. I've done waxes before on this but I just prefer it with no finish.
