I like your version. My "Price of Freedom" uses the exact same colors (Hot, Cobalt, Glacier White). If you have problems finding more of the red (Hot)....PM me, I now have a great source........me. I bought a 30" x 72" piece just for this pen and my "Go Bucs!" pen (Buckeye mania is alive and well here in Columbus).
I am working on a set of BOW Sierra click pens to send to military personnel that are members of our church. The next "Turning for troops" at the local Harrisburg PA Woodcraft store will be in November.
As usual, you have come up with a great combination of Corain to make a great looking pen. I am sure some service man or women would be honored to carry and use this pen. Excellent workmanship again!!!!
