    Certainly not a shirt pocket pen.
    Very individual design that will look special on the desk.
    Wats not to like?

    What Frank said, would look great on a desk, 1st one or 100th one doesn't matter, very nice either way

    I'd like to get this one to write a letter in prison . Very nice work Ken. What was it like to turn? Did you use a finish?

    1st Deer Antler Pen

    Thanks for the kind word,its very easy to turn,I turned it using my Ci1 rougher,then micro meshed to 12000 then a coat of carnuba wax.
    I forgot to mention that I am making a stand for it later on,I'll post a pic of it tomorrow if I get it done.

    So I knew you were moving, but I guess I didn't realize it was to Folsom.
