Wayne Reimer where are you mate? I was hoping you would post some pictures of your pens too. BTW what kind of camera equipment do you use. I am a Pentax user...I have a K-5 camera with a slew of lenses from 14mm up to 200mm plus flashes and tripods. Hmm! It just dawned on me how much stuff I have. :woohoo: The better to shoot my pens with!
I hope to hear from you Wayne.

Best to you
Leo

Originally from Calgary Alberta. Since retiring, I have been following my wife around the country with her career, currently in Regina Saskatchewan.

As for Camera equipment, I was a die-hard Fuji fan for many years, and still shoot an S5Pro for weddings and portraiture. I started an independent video production house a couple of years ago and began shooting Sony products for video work, and eventually moved into their mirrorless systems for stills. I currently have a NEX 3, a NEX 5N and a NEX7, and many more lenses than I need, Sony E and A mount and many Nikon lenses as well from my Fuji days. Astonishing that they are able to fit an APS-C sensor and 24 megapixels in a camera as small as this.

I will try to shoot some images of my pens in a few days. I am being admitted to hospital in a couple of hours for surgery so I'll be off-line for a few days

That is absolutely stunning! I'm going to say goodbye to my knives and start collecting pens. I didn't even realize there are custom-made pens, too. Drool... What an incredible craftmanship...

Well I will tell Duncan you said so my friend. He will appreciate your kudos. Please don't give up your knives yet, but you might want to save your shekels for a fine custom made pen. :)

Later my friend!

The first 4 are antler, another crepe myrtle, cotton candy with deep purple accent acrylic, jobillo, olivewood, black walnut, shredded cash!, lacewood (really prone to tearout and difficult to turn), spalted maple (I think). That last one is a fountain pen, but I really doubt the nib is on par with yours.

The first one I am unsure on species but the accent is acrylic, black walnut, pink opal acrylic, another of my own blanks (the white shows blue fire in the light), one of my experiments; a mix of three different shavings in acrylic, black walnut with a matte finish, another of my own blanks, a kingwood baron.
