    HRB sandwich

    This is #2 of my foray into segmented/sandwich pens. Platinum & Titanium Sierra with some HRB from Mr Keller, MD. The shiny stuff is aluminum to match the kit. 10 coats of CA knocked down with 0000 steel wool. This goes to my Optometrist...paid for my sunglasses with this one, not a bad deal!
    C&C always used on the next one and thanks for looking!

    Not a bad deal, indeed. The optometrist is the clear winner.

    Nice pen.

    Nice work on the segmenting/laminating in this one Jim!
    Nice match with the plating.
    Well done.

    I like this one a lot, Jim. I agree with Mohammad...the eye doctor is the winner in this deal.

    BTW, "HRB" is Humboldt Redwood Burl, right?

    Bud,

    That is a heirloom quality pen. Your optometrist will probably use that the rest of his life.

    I had my dad's Parker Pen. It is sort of like green marble. It is the same pen as the "Big Red."

    I said, "Had" because I recently passed it on to my son Glenn. I can see your optometrist doing that with the pen you made.

    Enjoy,

    JimB

    Why would Jim Burr's optometrist want to give this pen to Glenn?

    Glenn can make his own pen! Mr Bradley...you are a super turner! Don't take my inferior turnings to pass down to your kin...I'll get smacked for it later!
