Those look great. The first picture looks like they were thrown in there like darts. Cool.

Very nice Grumpy. The pen/pencil look great, but so does the pen holder…I love the grain in it.

I have a HUT Products catalog that shows a wood similar to this with the caption “Apa”. They don’t list a price for it. It’s just a color photo of a sample pen. So where does one get Austrailian blackwood in the States?

Sorry Sir Robert. Don’t know the answer to that one. You could try a google search.
