Recent pen I made from Pink Ivory paired with a 24k gold slimline twist hardware kit. The wood turned beautfifully, very similar to Bloodwood.

Finished with 5 coats of CA buffed to 12,000 grit. It took the finish extremely well, came out feeling more like an acrylic.

Thanks for looking :)

Very nicely done. The pen has a real elegant look, as well as comfortable looking. Now, exactly what is Pink Ivory?

Skylark- Pink Ivory is a rare (expensive) wood out of Africa.

Thanks, Joshy. The blank is from Woodcraft, the kit is from PSI.

Thanks, Norman. It sold recently at a craft show, one woman picked it up and simply couldn’t put it back down :)
