    Burnt Copper Tycoon

    Got this blank in a trade. He said he didn't want it, and my job was to turn it into a pen.

    How'd I do? Some don't like it cause it's not wood; some like it cause it's not wood!

    I like it cause it said WOW to me!

    As the title says, it's a Tycoon Rollerball in a Burnt Copper polyresin. The plating is Ti. Gold.

    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!

    It says Wow! to me, too. Personally, I like acrylic pens, and I like turning them, too. This one is beautiful.

    I used to be one of those guys who did not like acrylic pens, but I have to admit, I'm liking them more and more all the time............. which is partly your fault Mack

    This is another great example, yep, "WOW" to me too!

    What's not to like? That is a beautiful pen. That acrylic says WOW in more than one language, I'm sure. Very nicely done, Mack!
    Why has common sense
    become so uncommon?
