These were requested by my hospital for our National Respiratory Conference as gifts to the speakers. A week later, I saw one of the speakers, a Medical Director for a large hospital in the Bay area at an unrelated meeting and he was using his pen...doesn't get much better than that.
All were finished in 4 coats of thin CA, knocked down with 2400 mesh.
After looking at mandrel vs Between the Center turning...I'm going to BtC. Trying some test blanks in the coming weeks before I pop a $20 kit into the kindling box. These are Jr Gents in gold and Black titanium, my preference, with everything from eucalyptus to pistachio. Any and all critique is welcomed and used.
