    Commissioned Pair of .........

    Black Titanium / Platinum Elegant Beauties with Shed Elk Antler.
    This pair was requested by the President of the Alberta Elks Association for their up coming Convention Silent Auction this summer.

    Filled porous Antler marrow with Med CA, turned down, sanded to 400 grit, buffed with super fine steel wool and polished with Huts Ultra Gloss.

    As always comments and or suggestions appreciated.
    Thanks for looking.

    Very fine. The color of the marrow complements the black Tn very well.
    Elk is hard to make into pens because you almost always have to turn down to marrow. You pulled this off beautifully.

    Took the words out of my fingertips, Larry. I'm pretty sure both Les and Mack are actually from the planet Calligraph...that's why all their pens look perfect.
