Beautiful pens, maybe not as nice as the one you made for me, but super looking pens. Just kidding. These look great.

Cool modifieds. Are the center bands floating, or are they attached to one of the ends? I just posted some single tube modifieds, and will likely try some of these soon. Thanks for posting.

Thanks for the great complements you guys are too nice!
Sef the bands are free floating .
As for the flying pens, I have them trained to come to me when I call them but when one goes rouge watch out as they are Fast and hard to catch and go right for the eyes!

Just got these pens today and cannot believe how nice they look. The picutres did not do them justice. Ron is a trure craftsman of his pen making craft. The three people I gave these to just could not believe how beautiful they were. If you ever need pens made, I would highly recommed Ron to make them. They are the most beautiful pens I have ever seen. I had to keep one for myself. That is until the wife comes home and desides she wants it!

God Bless
