Last ones coming up...

the first one is an Apollo infinity in Persian turquoise, A Washington in Jobillo, another Baron in Coolibah, one of my own blanks, a segmented olivewood and antler, azurite web (another tru-stone blank), a banded Malachite Phoenix (also tru-stone), one last of my own blanks. The keyrings from top to bottom: Jobillo, one of my own pours(my daily pen is out of this same batch), walnut, antler, segmented Jobillo.

The Tru-stone blanks are actually stone that is crushed and then reformed under very high pressure to make a turn able stone. They are really striking and beautiful and are also an extremely hard material, pretty close to antler but just a bit harder in my opinion.

This is not how I normally shoot my pens but since I'm pretty pressed for time, I went quick and dirty. I hope the real beauty can be seen but as you know, a still picture just cannot show the fire as the light hits many types of wood and even the acrylics. There is a depth that can't be seen except in person or possibly a video. Enjoy!

Now that is pure excellence my friend! If those are what you haven't sold yet, I can only imagine how wonderful the sold instruments were.
Very well done mate!!! I applaud you...but I am green with envy for your pen case! LOL!

Thank you for the very kind words.

I can not remember offhand where I got the case but I will see if I can find out for you. [on edit] Here you go: leather pen binders

I have also been working on a blank that will give the appearance of stained glass on the finished pen. So far it has not given me the look I am trying to achieve, but I have a new pour I will try to get turned this weekend. I will keep you posted and if it works out, pics to follow.

Any thoughts on the TWSBI fountain pens as inexpensive, nice writing instruments?

Hi Mike
Good to hear from you. Yes it is a very fine set of pens(from their cheapest model to the more expensive vacumatic pen) and for the money spent you can't do much better. They are great writers and I believe they can be filled with an eye dropper instead of using a converter or piston...that way they hold a whole truckload of ink. Very worthwhile to own.
