Excellent work Kerux. I am going to have to break out of my European pen comfort zone and try one of these. Thank you for sharing.

both look great. I’ve got to claim the blue dyed maple burl as my favorite.
the photography/display of that maple burl is outstanding.

Thanks everyone.


I use analine dyes that I will mix myself. I don’t do the pressure dying. I just trim the pen down and then add my dye, sandy, add dye… sand…etc until I get it to where I want it.
