The checkered flag is acrylic, and the flames are dyed Maple. The flamed inlays are very delicate, and tricky. Need a lot of patience, and an exacto knife. It didn’t come out to my liking, but, it is what it is. Thnx for the looks and any comments,.........good/bad/ugly.

They look awesome! After seeing Keith make pens, I know it isn’t easy – especially ones like this. I think they came out great! :)

I don’t how they are in use Roger, but they look cool anyway. I like the maple flamed one best.

Nice job Roger, I’ve seen them advertised in PSI, that inlaying looks like “fun”. Good looking pens, but I wonder how comfortable they are. They look like they could be a pain to write with.

Roger those look awesome. I’m like the people above, any gearhead would love that. Great job. Look like tedious work though.
