Wilder pen than I usually turn, but, I kind of like it. Hardware is Titanium prisim from Exotic Blanks. Dressed in Spectraply (also from Exotic Blanks) and segmented with aluminum and Madagascar ebony. C&C always welcome.

From what I see - excellent Larry. I'd love to see a closer picture of the end caps/segmenting. The pictures do not zoom or link to a closer image.

Still, Very nice.

Thank you Larry. Excellent work with the segmenting (as well as the pictures). I had to laugh as I was not expecting such close-ups. Often I cringe when looking that close to some of my pens. Flaws that are not visible are made obvious. However, your shots show excellent edges, finish and fit - again, well done.

Larry I was just looking at this kit last night and was not sure how I felt about it but the close ups are get and now I wish I would have got a couple. Great work and the blank section it perfect for the kit.

Yeah, I cringed also. These pics are just digital enlargements using Photoshop. I usually shoot with a 12-24 mm lense as it gives excellent depth of field, even at close range. My longer lens would not focus at the shooting range, so I just enlarged them. None of the "flaws" were visible to my naked eye. Many thanks for your comments. There are so many valuable lessons to be learned from the masters and you are one of them.

Hi John,
I had the same misgivings, but went for it anyhow. I have 3 more of the kits to try and match up. Thanks for looking and commenting
