Scott, I know a lot of people who use blackwood pen blanks. Way cheaper (and easier to work) than ebony. I turned an ebony pen once and it was pretty nice to work with on the lathe. I’ve got a G & G book if you want me to scan the plug part. I seem to recall them recommending a skew and upward motion with the paring chisel. It pretty much is the same as Shane’s method. I know one guy shapes them on the disc sander.
