These are pens I made for one of the mids that we sponsor and his finance. One pen is made to resemble a nuclear submarine, which is what he will be training for. Both pens were made from a single ebony pen blank. I liked the symbolism of that.

Those are WAY nice, Rich. What are they turned out of?

It looks as if the sub could be used for electronics too. Can it?

They are both turned from ebony. The sub pen has a new (or at least new to me) mechanism called a gravity feed. Shake it once and the point extends. Shake it again and it retracts. It’s pretty neat to see how it works.
