    Bloodwood Cross Style

    50 caliber ballpoint with a maple nib.
    Sanded to 400x, buffed with super fine steel wool and applied 6 coats of MINWAX Clear Satin Wipe-On-Polyurethane which is thin enough and works great with the Dipping Method to apply.
    Using a 11/32" brad point bit to to imitate a spent primer.

    Currently working on some Parker style.
