    X-Cut Pauduk on a Sedona Rollerball pen



    The title pretty much says it all. The plating is Bk. Ti. Gold. This one is finished with 7 coats of 4 hr quick dry poly over 2 to 3 days. It was left to fully cure for a couple of days, then wet mm'd from 4,000 to 12,000 followed up with a couple of coats of Ren wax.

    It was a case where CA/BLO wouldn't take with the oil in the Pauduk. That's the reason for Plan "B" finish.

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

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.
