    Les, your pens are works of art.
    Why has common sense
    become so uncommon?

    Very fine work. Your addition of the black band is a excellent accent with the other black.
    Have you considered making Statesmen/Jr. Statesmen, Gents and/or Jr. Gents? IMHO, these are all steps up from the Baron and have, in my experience, much greater "Wow!" factors.

    Top-notch work, Les. I agree with Frank...the added black band is a great touch. The Baron and Sedona are two of my favorite pens to turn. I still need to try some of the "step up" models Frank mentioned.
