This piece of stabilized box elder burl came with one of the starter pen kits I purchased from PSI. Put it with a 24kt gold Big Ben Cigar kit.
The next one is ambrosia maple with another cigar kit
Then a Compson with heartwood ambrosia.
Finally a 30cal bullet kit with zebrawood.
I have more but don’t want to bore you with the so so ones.
I have a local store now carrying my pens on a very reasonable consignment. They have 20 of them now and I need to grab them some night to get pics of those before they sell (thinking optimistically!).
Have some nice ones in that bunch.
Still have about thirty kits or so in the shop, so have to get busy….and hope they sell.

Thanks Charles. I hope your shop is coming along. I’m sure you have most of your equipment set up by now.
You should post an update. I know you said the last blog would be the last but I would love to your shop all set up.

Nice group of pens. You should post the ones you have before they sell. I don’t think you need to be optimistic if they show the same quality as these ones you have here.
CA finish?
