yup, it turns easily, BUT, make sure you ca the heck out of the blank before you do….., also, it is important that the blank be drilled a little at the time. the dust will not come out on it’s own after a while, and the blank will burst because the powder is so fine and packs easily (don’t ask why i know)....

Beautifull job on all these pens. All very unique designs. Love the woods but the segmented is my favorite.

Keep it up.
