This is a Metro rollerball pen, obviously in chrome, from Woodcraft. I like the roller clip. The wood is unknown, I don't even remember where I got it. The finish is Pens Plus. This pen isn't my best effort. The wood turned out much darker than I expected, and I'm not totally happy with the finish. It's not bad, I suppose, but could have been better.

Hmmm ... Metro Rollerball looks to be the same as the Berea Virage Rollerball.

Don't recognize the wood, but someone else might. .

I think you have done as good as you could, Jim, given the porous surface .

I think you're right.

Looks like Walnut to me. I've got some blanks that I milled myself and they are the exact color and texture. I'll try to remember to drag some out and send you a photo of them. I do like the style of the pen though.
