Another Editor pen, from Exotic Blanks, this one in chrome. I really like the mango blank with it. The finish is Pens Plus.

I was originally going to use a quilted maple blank with this pen, but I just didn't like the way it looked. It looked "coarse" to me. So I started over with the mango. I like the mango much better.

Good call on the Mango over the Quilted Maple. The Maple can be an awesome flat work IMO, but on pen blanks my experience has been less than impressive. AND... I really like turning Mango; very interesting grain and an easy timber.

Lovely finished pen.

Yes, it turns easily. The Editor is the second mango pen I've made.
