This is my entry into the 2018 IAP Bash Advanced Casting Pen Contest. I decided to combine 2 of my favorite hobbies in a way, scroll sawing and pen making. This is a chrome Sierra Vista kit with a cast blank of scroll saw blades on a tube covered with a woodgrain vinyl. It was cast with Liquid Diamonds epoxy resin. It was turned and polished to a high shine. Thanks for looking and hope you like it.

you know, if you did it as a longbody clicker or the like, and didn’t actually CAST the blank, you could have entered it into the “Difficult to Write With” contest. :D

Very nice blank there, and one that I wouldn’t have even thought of making. Not that I’ve made any segmented blanks yet….

I thought about it and in fact I have a Zen I was going to do it on (have the tube with the woodgrain on it) and just glue the blade on edge. Maybe next year.
