This is the first of what I have dubbed the “Executive” series of pens. The kit is a rhodium and black titanium Statesman rollerball. This pen is quite large and is the first of this size I have made. I could only choose from among my largest blanks since the cap requires a 37/64 sized hole for the brass tube. It’s extremely hard to drill a hole of this size into a blank that’s any smaller than 7/8” thick. The wood is the most figured piece of vasticola burl that I had.
This was my 2nd attempt at this pen. On my first attempt, just as I was in the final buffing stage the blank got caught in the buffing wheel and launched into my lathe which cracked the blank… That prompted a few choice words!
