    European Premium

    8mm Double Twist Ballpoint in Gold with Red Dyed Maple Burl. Finished with 6 coats of Minwax Poly and polished with Hut Ultra Gloss Plastic Polish rather than Brasso.
    IMHO the Hut Polish dose not give as good a gloss as the Minwax alone or polishing with Brasso.

    As always comments and or suggestions welcome.
    Thanks for looking.

    Innovation is the process that renews something that already exists and not, as is commonly assumed, the introduction of something new.

    Beautiful job Les, wishing I had kept my lathe and given pens a try. Needed the room though, may have to keep my eye out for a mini lathe.

    Elegant looking Euro. Your finish is knock-out great. Hard to imagine better.
    Fine work.
