Nice. May I make a suggestion? I think you pens would be viewed more if you grouped them in a shot and identified/talked about them each in one post. Running individual posts for single pens tends to take up a lot of listings. Just a suggestion; I’ll always click on a pen listing to see what others are doing, and I like yours a lot. You do nice work.

@Martyroc: I don’t think olivewood is expensive. Between $4-$5 per blank. It is great wood to turn, has great figure and is just a pleasure to work with. And it gives off a slight odor that is very pleasant. I get mine at Craft Supplies USA (http://www.woodturnerscatalog.com/store/Turning_Materials___Pen_Blanks___Olive_Wood_from_the_Holy_Land___holy_olive?Args=). I live very near their store so I just stop by and pick it up when I want some. They’re fantastic folks.
