Not quite as black as ebony, but pretty darn black. Smells like hair burning when you turn it. Sharp tool and light cuts are the order of the day here. Elegant little fountain pen.

Very nice. As is your burl pen. I do love fine writing instruments, and your pens fit the definition of well designed and constructed. My compliments. Horn is a very tactile material to work with, and your pen is a nice example.

Al,Beautiful job. Did you use a finish or just buff it out?

Sedco – gave it away for a birthday gift to a lady friend.
Bake – could have just buffed it and it would have shone like a new penny, but I like my finishes to last so I gave it the usual treatment with CA.
