I am debating whether to keep this one in my collection or put a large price on it so it won’t sell lol. I have enclosed pictures of the 2 blanks part way through turning to show you what I had to work with and what eventually to my excitement was something totally unique in quite few ways for me. I hope you like it. The white circle in the lower barrel is actually part of a mistltoe infection the tree had. I put this on a Black TI Kit from Rockler (instructions called it a rhodium) don’t know but I like this one alot.

Very beautiful wood and an excellent result! The partially turned pictures are really interesting. I understand why you want to keep this one. Price it at the point where you would rather have the money with no regrets.

Looking at all the great pens in your projects, I’d want to keep them all, but I agree this one is particularly beautiful and has a unique story to tell. Keep it.
