These are a few of the first pens I turned a couple years ago and I don’t remember what type of wood the top pen is made of. They’re all finished with a few coats of carnuba wax.

Very nice. A straight slimline is a pretty boring pen. The details and thickness you gave these pens really makes them stand out. Well done.

Thanks Mike. True the slimline is fairly simple and I have quite a few to go through before I start a new style only because I don’t want them to be forgotten about. I try to make the design somewhat functional as well as look good. I’ve found though, that the bevel at the front tends to get a little uncomfortable when used for a while, so I’m working on that. I like it to function as a “stop” while holding the pen because they get slick with a really smooth finish, especially the acrylics.

Have your say...
