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.

Nice work!

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.
