    Thanks Branden it turned out great.

    WOW, very impressive. All your pens are great but the snakeskin is very unique! I've see rattlesnake blanks, but too cheap to pony up for myself!
    Thx for posting!

    I love that, Les. Now what is it? Is there real snakeskin under there or is it resin molded to look like snakeskin?

    Great pen, Les. I like that skin better than the rattlesnake skin pens I've seen.

    Cynthia, it's a real snakeskin embedded in the resin.
