I love the grain in Argentine Lignum Vitae. And the smell. The color will really deepen when left in the sun for a few days, too.Ipe reminds me of lignum vitae, which is also very dense. The Argentine variety can be green.
Beautiful pen. I'm a big fan of the sleekness and simplicity of it. I've never turned a Gunmetal and Chrome Gatsby before, but it looks like I might have to!This is a PSI Gatsby, in chrome and gunmetal, that I purchased from Rockler. The wood is ipe. Made a handsome pen.
