    Hawaiian pen blanks available

    Hi, all,

    I have a friend who owns a ranch in Hawaii with almost unlimited access to all sorts of native woods. He has pen blanks available for sale. He will send a box of 140 blanks, mixed woods, for $50.00, including shipping. He recently sent us a box and it had Formosa koa, peacock wood, curly eucalyptus, and several other "dunnowoods" in the box.

    If you are interested in getting a box of these blanks, please PM me and I will put you in touch with my friend.

    Is it possible to post a picture with the various types of wood.
    Sight is a powerful selling tool.
    Thanks,,,

    Now with pictures

    I was asked about pictures; here they are:

    Attachment 5604

    From left: Formosa koa, pheasant wood (previously mid-id'd as peacock wood), Philippine mahogany, Honduras mahogany, spalted ??, two curly eucalyptus, and a dunnowood.

    Attachment 5605
    Unknown, may be mahogany from the grain structure and pattern. Paul tells me that this is probably mango.

    Attachment 5606
    Again, Unknown, may be mahogany from the grain structure and pattern. Paul says this this is also probably mango.


    Attachment 5607

    Reclaimed teak.

    Attachment 5608

    Unknown, but very dark (darker than the picture shows), and very heavy - maybe 8 ounces for the two pieces.
