    Called to the Bar!

    A Triton Rollerball pen with Ti. Gold plating & White Truestone/Gold Matrix I was commisioned to turn as a present from a Mother to her Daughter who was very recently called to the bar! Of, course it contains the requisite blue ink cartridge for notarizing legal documents.

    The pen box is made from Black Cherry (bottom), Butternut (top), and the sides of Black Walnut by myself!

    It feels great to sell a pen,
    It feels even greater to give one to a friend!

    If your presence doesn't make an impact;
    Your absence won't make a difference!

    Wow Mack,
    You're quite the boxer... that is one nice box.

    The pen is pretty nice too, although that's not one of my more favored style of pens, you did it absolute justice.

    Hi Chuck; Too much bling on it? It's what the young lady ordered!

    I'm always looking for different pen styles. Help me here, tell me some of your more favoured styles.
