    Pocket Clip Pen Lights

    This one has Chrome/Black Enamel plating with a piece of Rosewood Myrtle.
    Sanded to 400x, buffed with super fine steel wool and applied 6 coats of MINWAX Clear Gloss Polyurethane.

    Very pretty. Les. I like the darker one best, but both are sweet. How do these sell for you?

    Thanks Vaughn,

    Just finished them today, so won't know how they will go over until my next gun show next month.

    Those are really cool. I might have to make some of those for my Navy medic son. They use those types of lights all the time.
