    Sweet! The pen is beautiful, and the reel seats are also awesome. Great work, Ron.

    Looks like you still have it Ron!
    Your pen blank Form, Fit and Finish look great.
    I like the reel seats too.
    Well done.

    Great looking, always did like your "bark" pens and seats. Of the Cholla, I like the red the best. Nice work.

    Beautiful pen and the reel seat.

    I had no idea what the reel seat was so I looked it up on google.
