Normally I wouldn’t post a pen, but I thought this one might be a little different. I looked back at some past postings for pens and did not see a camouflaged pen. ( I could be wrong.) I made this one for my boss who is moving on. He is prior military, as am I, and I thought this would be a fitting gift for him. The kit is a cigar style called “chrome black”. It goes very well with the camo pen blank. I will be making more of these.

There might have been dozens of other camo pens, but of course you didn’t see them ;)
Very unique indeed. Is this an inlay you worked up, or an acrylic blank? never seen one like this either.

Thanks for the comments. The blank is acrylic. My local wood store got about 20 of them in and they were gone in about 2 days.They have more on the way. I wasn’t sure how the pen would polish up. Thought it would end up with a satin finish, but it turned out glossy. Would look good either way.
