My father was a pen maker and recently passed. I have about 150-200 blanks that I don’t need and want to pass along to those that want them for a nominal price. Many sizes and types of wood. The majority of them he marked. If you have an interest or would like for me to see if I have a type of Wood, please let me know. Here are a few from today

Todd, you did a LOT of work to assemble this listing. I will suggest that many of the listed blanks are above average for resale. Price accordingly.

Do you mean that they are worth more than others? I have not priced any and I am not in it for making a lot of money. Just want to sell what I can since there’d are so many. Plus I would not know how to price them all.

From your sample pictures and the list, they look like nice blanks, a lot of burls and exotics. I'm not in the market but if you were going to sell it as a collection of pen blanks (estimating about 200 of them), $4 per blank would probably be a bargain.
Your "other wood" sounds like small boards, a nice collection too, the thickness would help to determine what can be done with them.

any idea what “steelwood” means?

PM sent
Not sure but it looks and feels like it is man made. It’s compressed and heavy.
