    Three more Pens for the troops.

    All three are Euro Style, finished in Black Titanium. All are sanded to 600 grit, three coats of Mylands Cellulose Sanding Sealer sanded with 600 between coats, finished with three coats of Mylands High Build Friction Polish. sanded with 600 between coats. Beall buffed with Tripoli, White Diamond Compound and Carnauba wax.

    The first is Bocote, the second is Spalted Katalox Burl and the third is Camphor Burl, smells real nice when working the wood. The first is going to my step sonís brother in law serving in Iraq, and the other two are going to the son of my Wifeís friend and his team partner, serving in Afghanistan.
