This was only the second time that I have made a pen of this design. I believe it called a “Polaris” style. I really like this pen for 2 primary reasons. First, it is nice to be able to make a pen with a single tube. Second, I REALLY like olive wood. This particular piece is from a handful of pen blanks that ordered from Israel. The color of figured olive is so beautiful. I don’t remember exactly what finish I used on this, but I am sure it is a friction polish/wax of some sort. Perhaps will make one of these for myself some day. This particular one now belongs to my oldest son’s girlfriend.
