    As the song says --- There is No Arizona, No Painted Desert..........

    but there is a Sedona!

    A rollerball pen that is! It's been turned from Zebrano, and dyed a yellow (gold) to increase the chatoyance of the X-cut as well as the contrast of dark striations in the pen.

    To finish it off, the plating is top of the line Titanium Gold.

    For your viewing pleasure, I hope!

    It feels great to sell a pen,
    It feels even greater to give one to a friend!

    If your presence doesn't make an impact;
    Your absence won't make a difference!

    Great looking pen, Mack. It just begs to picked up and used.
    Why has common sense
    become so uncommon?

    Mack, is that a blemish I see on that finish?
    Are you sure that pen is up to your high standards?
    Did you fire your Quality Control Manager before that pen was finished?
    Probably best to send that there pen to Indiana and let me inspect it for defects and functionality!!!!!!! No charge of course, that is what friends are for! Promise to get around to testing and using it in the next ten years!!
    Seriously, really like the dye idea to show off the striations of the X-cut. So many times I get one finished and they don't "pop" so many people don't know/understand the complexity of the pen. Very nice pen Mack, !!!

    God and family, the rest is icing on the cake. I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place!
