It's hard to tell by the photo, but the wall on this pen at the bushing end is 1/32" thick. For a metal sandwich and spalted wood...that wasn't the best idea I've ever had...but it held up! Gold and black Ti Elegant Beauty from Berea. Wood is spalted something with a copper inlay and 10 coats of thin CA and polished with Hutts. I really wanted a Jr Gent out of it, but after all was said and done...wasn't going to happen. Swap pen for an IAP event, hope they like it and thanks for looking!
