Turning out the Pens

This one was made as a birthday present, and takes a blank I was really interested in seeing turned, coupled with a Sedona mechanism.

I was a bit surprised how translucent the pen blank was – the colour of the brass core can be seen through it, which although doesn’t detract from the result, was not what I was looking for.

The box is a nice presentation style from Carbatec, and not particularly expensive either.  I didn’t mind using a commercially made box, so long as it isn’t wooden.  If I gave a pen in a wooden box I’d rather have been the one to have made the box as well.  But this felt box certainly looks, and feels the part.
