Nice pen. What would something like that sell for. I want to go to some craft shows in my area and was wondering about pricing. Thanks Don.

Wow. Not sure if you are a better photographer or turner. Really nice pen and incredible pictures. I love that pen kit. Nice work.

I’ve debated making one of these. The kits are a bit expensive and I’d never seen one outside of the catalog. Now, I’m prepared to spring for the kit. It’s a fantastic looking pen. I like that you used a simple but beautiful wood. The more lavishly decorated pens can tend toward gaudy with highly figured woods.

I’ve turned a couple of Majestics, but never a fountain pen. Really outstanding job. Great finish.

Hardhead – I’ve seen these kits with highly figured woods or burls fetch $200+ at art shows in my area. Some Lumberjocks have them in jewelry shops on consignments for more.

Great pen…

The Majestic kits are effectively expensive, but I think the quality of theese is undiscutable. I’m not enough use to write in english to well describe the pen, but I tell you, the fountain and ball point pen are really big, weight, and the fountain as a nib you writes very well. The nib is different than those we can get for 5$ on ebay!

Bertha, I’m asking 250$ CAD for this one.

I will upload a pict of a roller ball pen kit.
