Pens turned from mule deer antler.
The antler came from a small 4 point that a friend killed this season.
1 and 3 are slimline, 2 is a cigar style. All pen kits are from Craft supplies USA.
Sanded to 600 grit.
Finish is 12 coats of CA polished out to 12,000 grit.
I use the EWT mid size rougher and finisher tools with my 10” Jet lathe.

Very nicely done. I particularly like #2, the cigar style.

Very nice. I recommend you try the bolt action pens with the antler….or one of the other bullet style pens for that matter. I really like number 3 the best. Your friend gets one of them..right….ha.

Well-formed. Like the color too.
