Great looking. Thats darker than I’ve ever seen cocobolo.
Your wife should be proud to own them.

Regarding the finish, if you’re looking for a fast, highly polished shine, try Mylands finish. You can get a 20 oz. bottle at your local woodcraft store. Easy to apply while your turned pen pieces are still on the lathe.

I’m beginning to thing they sold me the wrong chunk a wood. Oh well it turns nice and finishing is ok. It’s real oily.
