The customer wanted a pen in the style of a katana (or whatever the short knife is called) with the gray representing damascus steel. Bob did a great job with this one.

This is based on his Kingman Turquoise, but with blue as the dominant color. I love it.

And this is some of his 7 Seas. Made a piston filler with it.

I love the sword pen! FWIW, the tanto is the knife-sized sword, the mid-sized sword is the wakizashi, the katana is the large sword. This pen reminds one of a sword in shirasaya mounting, where the tsuka (handle) matches the saya (sheath) with no tsuba (guard).

Regards,
Michael

The katana looks good. I'm glad to finally see the gray damascus blank turned. Do you have a picture of it closed?

Thanks! Yeah I'm really happy with how it turned out.

Holy Crap Jack! These pens are gorgeous George ! I think all of them are fantastic, but I have to admit that the one fashioned after the Japanese "Tanto" as Michael has pointed out is my favourite. A lot of planning & work has gone into the designs of all three, no four pens, from the blank making, to the drilling, turning thread cutting, both in & outside threads, & all that polishing...Take a bow Shawn, these accolades are all for you.
Great job.
Ric.
