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 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!
