After making pens for everyone else I decided to make one for myself. The wood is Che-Chen with a couple of coats of HUT Crystal Coat friction finish.

Very nice looking pen. Hang on tight to this one so it doesn’t walk away. Thanks for sharing Todd.

If it walks away it’ll give me an excuse to make another.

Very nice pen. One of these days I am going to go into the pen business. The thing that keeps me from doing them now is that I know I will not be able to keep one for myself.

Love that majestic kit. Good work on the pen. The wood looks rich and lusterous. Great finish.

I think I have to turn one for myself, now, too!
