This is a PSI Vesper pen in gunmetal. It's the stylus version. The wood is ipe, given to me by one of the ladies at work. Her son used to work in a cabinet shop. The finish is Pens Plus. Nice looking pen.

When I started roughing it, it was really hard. I've turned ipe before, and it's dense, but it wasn't THIS dense. Then it dawned on me. Because of the way I cut it, it ended up being diagonal grain. I cut it from a round piece, that I was going to use for a wedding pen stand, but it was too small.

I engraved it for her. That's her name in Italian (Ann Marie), and on the other side it says female master chef. I think. I hope Google got it right!

The angle of the diagonal cut looks great! That angle and that particular grain drew my eye to it immediately. Very attractive!

Lovely looking Pen not sure what IPE is looks a little like what we Brits. Call Plywood.
But the result looks great.
