ive done pens off and on for about 12 years having done hundreds and ill say your starting off pretty good buddy,those look top notch!if you really want to get in to pen making check out IAP, international association of pen turners,thats all they do,it will save you you a lot of trial and mostly error in pen making.nice job.

Very nice.
Expensive little hobby….....everyone absolutely loves the pens (when they are given to them as gifts) but don’t really want to pay for them. It adds up quick but pen making is a really an enjoyable distraction.
