I can see why this is called Majestic. A kit from Penn State Industries, this is a huge writing instrument…..Big Business fountain pen. I wanted to post these yesterday, but, I didn’t get them done until today. Cocobolo is the woods, and again, 12 coats of CA glue, then wet sanded w/micro mesh through 10000 and final coats, 2, with a Hut Ultra Gloss polish. I’m finally gettin the hang o this CA finish on these writers. Again, thnx for the looks and good/bad/ugly comments will, well, you know. :):) I hope to get around to making some sort of stand for these as a pair.

Really a nice looking combo there Roger, you should not have any trouble finding a home for these.

The holder is where I would totally stress out and procrastinate, ‘cause it has to compliment this gorgeous set. Will make an outstanding gift to someone. Thanks for sharing, Roger.
