Hi Folks:

This is my new addition to my personal desk pen collection. I think I bought these in almost every color. They turn very easily and are opaque. The only challenge that I faced, which I think is more a function of the kit threads, is aligning the pattern when joining the cap to the lower barrel. Interestingly, the pattern is somehow present all the way through the blank. The Jr Harold has an antique silver finish. While it definitely wasn't necessary, I did add several coats of CA to survive the chaos of my desk. The CA did slight deepen/darken the finish (which I like). I found these blanks to be a lot of fun and can be turned without painting tubes and barrels. l bought all from Exotic Blanks.

That's a really successful combination. I really like it.
