    Some of my latest pens



    Cigar turned from Desert Ironwood, plated in Blk. Titanium. No finish necessary. Buffed with Formax Buffing Compound as well as Carnuba Wax.



    Another Cigar turned from Australia Figured Myrtle, plated in Ti. Gold. Same finish as above pen. Very dense and oily wood!



    A cigar cast in Polyresin by an acquaintance of mine. The cast was labelled "Mixup" when I received it.



    Another cast by the same person as above on a Blk. Ti Cigar pen.


    A Long Click turned from Tanzanite Twist from Exoticblanks.com



    I blew the first blue from the nib end, so decided to salvage with this piece of Mother of Pearl polyresin!




    A Triton Fountain in Alchemy PR from Exoticblanks.com



    Another Triton FP turned from Ancient Mars PR. from Exotics.



    This is a pair of Cambridge Rollerballs commisioned for a wedding on Sept. 2. Mother of Pearl for the lady and Black Pearl for the guy.


    I have no relationship to the newlyweds, but this box has been donated to carry the pens.

    It feels great to sell a pen,
    It feels even greater to give one to a friend!

    If your presence doesn't make an impact;
    Your absence won't make a difference!

    Mack i think your pens are great, and don't stop showing them just becouse you don't have a lot of imput. I think it's just the way of these forums. if you notice most posts have a whole lot more folks looking than commenting.

    You can say it backwards, which is:

    Dociousaliexpisticfracticalirupus,

    But that's going to be even better. Don't you think?
    Indubitably!

    So when the cat has got your tongue
    There's no need for dismay
    Just summon up this word and then
    You've got a lot to say about Mack's pens because Indubitably they are

    I realy like those Cambridge pens. Where do you buy those at? I need a couple of pens that would make good head turners.

    Mack, please don't get upset. I think some people look but don't know what to say. Some don't realize the level of quality your pens are. Some are plain speechless when they see your pens, thus the number of lookers versus the number of posters!!
    The very first cigar pen looks fabulous. The mix up pen I just like the color combination of that blank, it is outstanding.
    The wedding pens, more ornate than I have done for a wedding, will have to look into them as they are spectacular!
    Mack, it may have taken me a couple of days to open and look, it has been a whirlwind around here. Please channel your frustration into production and show us some more. Been thinking it was time for you to have a new batch to show us, you didn't disappoint those of us who know or have come to appreciate your craftsmanship. Great job and please continue dazzling us with your creations. I always show your pens and Les' pens to my students.

    God and family, the rest is icing on the cake. I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place!
