Been a long time since I have turned anything, so when I had a bit of spare time I took the opportunity to see what I could use out of the drawers.
I found this unused kit, and found a piece of Truestone already glued up on a Sierra tube.
It felt good to be at the lathe again :)

Nice, Brad. Which kit is that?
It looks like it is easy to hold and write with.

Looks like it’s called “Virage”. It is a nice pen to hold and write with.
It’s built on the same chassis as the Sierra, I prefer a pen that has a nib or finial that unscrews to change the refill.
But it’s a nice looking kit all the same.

That's a beautiful pen! I hope you were careful with the dust. IIRC, there is real malachite in the truestone and it's pretty toxic to inhale.
The 6 inch dust extraction hose behind my lathe sucks away all dust and fumes, but a good caution for those without dust extraction. Thanks.
