Some pens I have done over the last couple of years, no where close to all that I have done. Just a sampling really.

Wow. That second one is stunning. Did you configure the design? And… is the last one a KC Twist pen? I tried those several times and never got one I truly liked, even adding a band into the middle.

All of these pens are mine (for the most part.) I have borrowed from others of course.
First pen is part of a graduation set I did for our High school band. each graduating Senior from the music program was given a pen. Material is Oceania Color Grain from PSI AKA dymondwood from other vendors. Kit is designer from PSI, with the graduation year band (2011) and a treble clef clip. I did 30 of these.

Second pen is a Jr Gent 1 Blank is Walnut with Mahogany scallops separated with Maple veneer. This is my Wife’s daily user, finish is just a wax finish as she does not like the plastic feel of a CA finish.

third pen is a PSI Designer in walnut, the open grain of the walnut is filled with antique gold gilders’ wax, and a CA finish, this is my daily user.

The last pen is known a fat line style made popular by Russ Fairfiled. Basically it’s a customized slimliine kit, replacing the center band and using a contrasting material with a thicker profile. This was a gift to a young man earning his eagle scout rank. I used to be an adult leader with one of our local troops, and when I am invited to an eagle court of honor, the young man earning his eagle scout is presented a pen. These pens are typically designer or slimline and the wood is always Oak as the Valley Oak is the unofficial symbol of this troop. This particular pen was made from a scrap of quarter sawn white oak. The main blank is cut on a 50 degree bias to enhance the grain and rays from the oak. The center band is scrap walnut, the black bands on that were burned in with wire. Finish is CA.
